Meet Robert

McCartney Healthcare Associates founder and solicitor Robert McCartney first started working in hospitals when he was just 18. His passion for healthcare stayed with him as he studied for his degree and since qualifying as a solicitor he has more than six years’ experience working in the industry.

Previous roles as an in-house solicitor and senior manager for one of the largest community health providers in the country and one of the biggest providers of GP, urgent care and associated services have given Robert a unique insight into the challenges facing primary care providers.

In an environment where the demands on services are increasing and stretching resources to their limits, Robert’s expertise supports practices with innovative, focused solutions to deliver new ways of working that are as good for patient care as they are for your business.

  • 'We worked with Robert to help us through our practice merger. His excellent advice, guidance and comprehensive planning made the whole process run smoothly and efficiently. His communication and reassurance to GPs and staff were invaluable. We highly recommend Robert's services to any practices looking to merge.'
