I have been a consultant since 2002 in a busy District General Hospital Intensive Care Units which has over 1000 admissions per year. Disputes are common in Intensive Care, with the Conflicus study showing that they occur in 80% of end of life decisions. With mortality on a typical UK ICU of 20%, this means that I have a large experience in resolving disputes in the most highly stressful situations. I am registered with the Civil Mediation Council and lecture on healthcare mediation both to National and International meetings. I have been involved in several groups to further mediation in healthcare. I have also been interviewed by the BBC about healthcare mediation – “The NHS could save millions of pounds if families and doctors were offered mediation when they disagreed on a treatment, a leading consultant said.”

I have had several senior managerial roles both inside and outside the NHS, set up and run businesses and had experience of the commercial world as well as healthcare. I bring all of this experience to my role as a mediator.

In 2014 I was an expert witness in a case in the Court of Protection. The Court had been asked to decide about the Best Interests of a patient who was close to the end of his life. I was able to help mediate a resolution to the disagreements between the parties.

I'm happy to mediate any dispute. I provide healthcare mediation through the specialist group Trust Mediation, who can be contacted here. Trust Mediation are one of only two companies providing mediation services for NHS Resolution.

I am a volunteer for Resolve, who provide community mediation in Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

I'm happy to mediate anywhere in England and Wales.
