A Head of Legal is required to join a NHS Organisation in the Home Counties on a temporary basis for an initial period of 3 months, with the view that this could be extended.

  • Supporting the team in relation to delegation, building relationships internally and externally and assist with training requirements
  • Working with the team on litigation based work to include inquests, clinical negligence and claims work
