For clients not seeking a full dispute resolution service, we can also offer a range of technical advice. This can be on an ad hoc hourly or daily rate basis or as a retainer, where a fixed monthly fee buys telephone and email advice for a period of time.
We can provide independent opinion by telephone or email on the
- NHS Standard Contract
- Contract Technical Guidance
- NHS Payment Scheme
- Commissioning for Quality and Improvement (CQUIN)
- Arbitration/Mediation precedents that we are aware of
- Other national policy and guidance, e.g. a patient’s ‘right to choose’
Where you may be considering your options in a contractual dispute, some independent advice can be crucial in informing your decision and ensuring you make the right choice.
