Actons provides independent legal advice for NHS employees receiving standardised NHS settlement agreements.
We have been providing this service to employees of NHS Trusts throughout England since September 2010.
Recommending our service to your employees can speed up the whole process and save the management time which would otherwise be spent dealing with a plethora of different firms.
We act for Truts all over the country in person or by phone. We can advise a maximum of 20 employees per day, visiting the Trust’s premises where possible.
Impartial advice for every Employee
Although our work is funded by the employer, it is our responsibility to make each employee aware of their rights.
We guarantee that every employee will receive impartial, specialist legal advice which is tailored to their needs whilst providing a fixed, low cost rate to the employer.
