Our Services

As specialist health and social care lawyers, Ridouts can support you through what can be a labyrinth of legal issues.

We understand the bigger picture of balancing regulatory requirements and political pressures, alongside the provision of high quality care. We also recognise the challenges faced by providers, and work tirelessly to reach the best possible outcomes across a range of regulatory and operational issues.

Ridouts works across the health and social care sector, and we only act for Providers and other bodies that advise the sector. Unlike our competitors, this enables us to provide robust advice, without compromise. We get to the heart of issues our clients face, working in conjunction with clients, to find solutions. We get results.

Clients include:

  • Care Homes
  • Home Care Agencies
  • Independent Hospitals
  • Learning Disabled Care Homes
  • Children’s Homes
  • Residential Special Schools
  • Fostering Agencies
  • Substance Misuse Centres
  • NHS Trusts
  • GPs
  • Dental Practices
  • Supported Living Providers


We can offer guidance on a wide range of issues for organisations providers that work in the social care sector, such as care homes, home care services, children’s homes, and independent hospitals.


We offer a specific set of services tailored to the regulatory legal needs of General Practitioners.


I got through to Paul immediately and he told me what to do there and then; I didn’t realise how limited the Local Authority’s powers were.
They are saviours! They rescued my business – they are worth every penny!
You feel that you get both legal advice and consultancy, borne out of many years of dealing with regulators
Caroline came back to me immediately with a high quality, considered response.
I was immediately impressed with Jenny’s knowledge in legal matters and how care homes work at a business level.
I went to their symposium – it was a big investment of time – but it was wonderful – I learnt a lot and like the way they spoke – easy to understand, clear, friendly – I would definitely use them if I needed to – and would absolutely recommend them.
I know for a fact that the CQC fear Ridouts – they know you are taking it seriously if you work with Ridouts.
Knowing they only work for care providers adds trust in them
