Hugh James advises Rocialle Healthcare on acquisition of Ward Mobility


Hugh James has advised Rocialle Healthcare on the acquisition of the Ward Mobility business, which will become part of the recently formed Rocialle Direct division.

Rocialle is an expert medical and surgical products and service provider based in Mountain Ash, South Wales.

This exciting acquisition, which includes a dispensing business, enables Rocialle to develop its ‘direct to patient’ supply route via a dedicated prescription home delivery service. This further supports the needs of patients and carers living with stoma, continence and/or wound care needs and provides total commitment to serving customers with what they need, when they need it.

The Hugh James team advising Rocialle was led by Partner and Head of Corporate/Commercial Gerallt Jones and Corporate Senior Associate Gemma Davies.

Gerallt said:

“We’re delighted to complete this transaction for Rocialle Healthcare. This is the latest in a number of deals we have advised Rocialle on and it’s pleasing to assist with the growth and expansion of the business, including the development of its direct to patient supply route in particular.”

Gill Sims, Business Development Director at Rocialle Healthcare said:

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Gerallt, Gemma and the rest of the team at Hugh James for their support and guidance throughout this process. Their expertise enabled us to navigate our way from start to finish, feeling fully involved and informed at all times.”
