3 How can we help? DWF is a large commercial law firm with the expertise and resources required to support NHS organisations. We are able to help you as a result of our position on the SBS legal framework for all Lots. Why choose us? We bring a fresh approach which places you and your needs at the centre of our offering. We understand the NHS environment but we are more than that: we are commercial experts able to provide you with commercial solutions, not just legal advice, drawing on our wider experience of the healthcare sector. Michael Boyd Head of Healthcare DD +44 (0) M +44 (0) E Key features of our offering include: Commitment, Expertise and Perspective: DWF's Healthcare Sector Group draws together in-depth know-how and experience from across the sector to help a wide range of organisations (from both the public and independent sectors) which are involved in activities across the healthcare spectrum. This broad range of experience allows us to assist with the straightforward as well as the complex and to bring solutions and a helpful, fresh, commercial perspective. Quality: Quality is the hallmark of DWF's legal services and is a key differentiator between us and other law firms. We have been ranked in first place amongst all top 20 law firms in the UK on the quality of our legal advice in the highly respected Client Satisfaction Report (2013) by Legal Week and were ranked in the top three in each of the two preceding years in the same category. Extremely professional, responsive and resourceful. The team at DWF focussed on getting results, whilst being thoughtful and deliberate throughout the process, placing their client s needs ahead of their own. Client Feedback Innovation: Wherever possible, we strive to find innovative solutions for our clients. An example of our innovative approach is ProjLink - a free, web-based network aimed at helping NHS organisations to manage complex contracts more effectively and secure value for money. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss any aspect of this proposal with you and to introduce the colleagues who are included in it. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to contact me. 3

I found them consistently professional, approachable, responsive and had the ability to "translate" legalese to make it understandable to the lay man. They gave good advice and as a partnership we were happy with the contracts that they helped us to negotiate." Kate Southwell, Senior Planning Consultant, Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust During the 12 months that we have been with DWF we have managed to achieve a significant reduction in our legal costs, due to the expertise of the team, their excellent client service and the fact that they will go the extra mile for our business.

6 Pricing and Value We are conscious of the need of our clients for fee arrangements which deliver value, transparency, clarity and flexibility. We use different strategies for different work types - each with the prime aim of creating value, reducing cost to you and delivering operational efficiencies. Value The hourly rates that we will work with have been fixed following a competitive procurement process. They will deliver value for money. Transparency We recognise your need to have certainty and transparency with regard to your costs while at the same time being able to access a support package that is flexible to your needs. With this position in mind, we are always happy to discuss our charging basis with you to achieve a solution which delivers your requirements. In addition, sharing a costed transaction plan with you (as well as regular updates of actual activity) will also facilitate transparency as to how we have resourced the tasks involved and the time we have spent in carrying them out. As such, should the scope of our role change, you will be able to have total visibility of the costing implications. Clarity At the outset of an instruction we will propose a capped fee where possible that has been calculated after dividing the instruction into its constituent stages and the individual tasks within each stage. We will share this with you in order to facilitate joint monitoring of activity against the original plan. At DWF the whole ethos is around partnership, which starts with understanding your business. If your legal partner understands how you differentiate and add value then they deliver the service you need. Our experience of the DWF Property, Employment, Commercial and Corporate teams certainly demonstrated that throughout our business. Ultimately DWF see our business as their business to promote, protect and prioritise. I would recommend the as a necessity in these times of change and competition - a real strategic partner. Crescent Exchange Solutions This will create clarity around the total cost of the instruction as well as at each of its stages - there will be no surprises. Flexibility Clients also require flexibility in fee arrangements so that where appropriate, there is a move away from billings based simply on time recorded. 6

7 Key Contacts As a leading law firm, DWF has the depth of resource and experience to ensure that the right team is in place to deliver top quality support to you and respond to your commercial objectives as they develop over time. We will not make any changes to your team without first checking with you so you benefit from a consistent service from the team who know your business.
