Featured Experience

An NHS Mental Health Trust

A patient with agoraphobia required ultrasound scans and a plan for delivering her baby. Supported the Trust to prepare a care plan and evidence for a Court of Protection application to convey the patient to hospital for tests and scans in pregnancy and to undertake a caesarean section to deliver her baby.

An NHS Commissioning Body

A patient with learning difficulties required a transfer to a new placement due to their needs not being met and the placement being placed under investigation. Supported the Commissioning Body through a period of interim care and advised on detail needed for a Court approved move to a new appropriate placement.
