I am an experienced mediator and the only practicing doctor on either of the panels used by NHS Resolution to mediate clinical negligence disputes.
My background as a practicing intensive care consultant gives me a unique perspective on healthcare disputes. My clinical job involves making time critical life and death decisions.
I am very used to managing disputes, as these are common in Intensive Care. The Conflicus study showed that they occur in up to 80% of end of life decisions on ICU.
I lecture nationally and internationally on mediation in healthcare and it is my major research interest:
I am the only doctor on the Court of Protection Mediation pilot project.
I have been interviewed about healthcare mediation:
- Doctor urges compulsory mediation in patient care rows
- Mediation and medical cases – reflections on process and outcomes
I’m happy to mediate any dispute, but specialise in healthcare mediation.
I am happy to accept instruction as a mediation clinician, where I will provide advice to a party involved in a mediation based on my experience as a clinician and mediator.
I mediate clinical negligence disputes involving NHS Resolution solely through Trust Mediation, who can be contacted here.
I am a volunteer for Resolve, who provide community mediation in Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
I’m happy to mediate anywhere in England and Wales.
