Nythan Smith

Senior Associate, Healthcare Regulatory


Why choose me

In the health and social care sphere, no two days are the same – just like the issues healthcare providers encounter. When you face legal hurdles, I’ll be with you to provide straight-talking, expert advice to navigate the situation effectively.

I understand the motivations of both the regulators and the regulated – and adopt a critical eye when considering the best course of action in any given scenario. Regardless of the issues you’re facing, I’ll provide you with business critical time sensitive advice.

I work with businesses and individuals in the health and social care arena – from large companies to SMEs to individuals who operate nursing homes, hospitals and care homes.

My specialisms include providing regulatory advice to providers across the adult social care sector and executive-level advice on the management of commercial and operational risks to healthcare companies. I respond to the full breadth of CQC enforcement action, including both urgent and non-urgent notices of proposal, CQC inspections and advise on registration matters for providers and managers with the CQC. I also provide regulatory advice to the children’s social care sector before Ofsted.

My expertise also covers criminal representation regarding charges that are brought by regulators and providing safeguarding advice in relation to investigations under section 42 of the Care Act 2014. I also carry out regulatory due diligence for business in the process of acquisition; and draft, negotiate and advise on commercial contracts along with work on tender exercises. If you’re faced with an inquest I will advise you in preparation for them in order to protect your interests. I’ll also produce reports for the Coroner’s office on your behalf.

Outside of work I’m a fitness enthusiast and enjoy participating and watching sport of all kinds. I also enjoy travelling – typically to warmer climes – and attending the theatre.
