“Be the best; Do the most; Innovate”
Established in the late 1990s, the Personal Injury department’s mission statement succinctly sums up the ethos of the team.
This strictly not for profit team provides advice to Trusts and Boards throughout Wales in the following fields:
The Department is unique in the fact that it has an intimate knowledge of the NHS, having a deep understanding of Board Policies as well as a strong network of connections with key personnel at all levels. Strong client relationships are built.
Six monthly reports were introduced, keeping the client informed on issues and provide valuable analysis of trends in all areas of the litigation process for Health Boards as well as focusing upon learning lessons and giving practical risk management advice in areas that have been identified as vulnerable. Prevention is better than cure.
The results achieved in defending cases and in the provision of advice have been consistently excellent. High levels of savings in costs and damages have been demonstrated consistently.
The team’s hands on approach ensures collaboration with clients. Educational programmes and presentations ensure that the Client is kept up to date with all aspects of practice.
