Social Services and the NHS


They have responsibilities to ensure care is provided, and if necessary make arrangements for care provision. Mostly this works very well, however just occasionally problems arise.


Taking Social Services to court does work, although it may be expensive and time consuming. Mediating with them, either with a days formal mediation or through a mini mediation is often much more productive.


Relationships and the provision of care can be strengthen, with better understanding being given by service providers.


What is most important, the vulnerable adult gets the care they need.


Care Homes


When our loved one goes into long term care, we always want the very best for them. Mostly this happens, unfortunately difficulties may arise. Sorting these out through mediation helps everyone to understand what care is needed and helps to promote a more caring relationship.


Mini Mediations


In many of the above situations a mini mediation is very useful. These are usually either a half day or spread over serval hours, with the Mediator negotiating a satisfactory result for all parties.
