Thomsons Lawyers Poised to Deliver on Health Reform

19 March 2010


Thomsons Lawyers has further bolstered the ranks of its highly experienced Health and Aged Care Group, positioning it for strong future growth in the wake of health reform.

The leading firm has announced the appointment of highly credentialed consultant Ken Ramsay

Boasting a solid history of advising key health and aged care clients in the public sector, including the NSW government, the private sector and not-for-profit organisations, Ken is considered one of the foremost authorities on tenders and commercial contracts.

“Ken has played a prominent role at the coalface of the health and aged care sectors over a number of years and across significant periods of change and we are delighted to secure his services,” said National Corporate Group Partner Lucinda Smith.

“In particular, Ken brings an intimate knowledge of how the structural and funding models work and that will be invaluable in responding to reforms in the health sector nationally.

“This appointment adds another layer of depth to our team’s expertise and ensures we remain ahead of the game in providing our clients with the highest level advice on the implications of the health reforms being proposed at both a national and state level.”

The expansion of Thomsons Lawyers’ Health and Aged Care Group is also strong recognition of the expected boom in the aged care and retirement village sector in Australia over the next 20 years, as the population ages.

“As demand increases, our knowledge of the regulatory and capital funding issues facing the sector will be invaluable in helping our clients to plan their future business around government and community expectations,” Ms Smith said.

“I look forward to drawing on my diverse experience to add value to the firm and its clients at such a dynamic and challenging time,” Mr Ramsay said.
