“Contracts were awarded following a rigorous, competitive procurement process to ensure firms are appointed that can provide a high quality service at a competitive price, ensuring maximum value for money,” NHS Resolution said.

In May 2017 NHS Resolution named 13 law firms to its existing, three-lot panel.

It said: “NHS Resolution has a longstanding partnership relationship with panel firms on the existing panel which was awarded in 2017 and wishes to thank the firms and their staff for their support during this period, particularly during the pandemic when their agility and commitment ensured continuity of service during a challenging period.”
