Independent Mediators working with you and the NHS LA

Specialist Mediation since 2008

Trust Mediation has been appointed by NHS Resolution (NHSR) to provide specialist independent mediation services to help resolve personal injury and clinical negligence claims.

Why Mediate?

Mediation is an effective way of resolving compensation claims more quickly and at lower cost than going to court. It can reduce the risk and uncertainty of litigation for both sides. It also gives the parties the opportunity to explore solutions a court can not provide.

Parties who unreasonably refuse to mediate may be subject to a costs penalty. See our case digest for more information.

The Procedure

The parties will nominate the mediator from Trust Mediation’s panel of specialist personal injury mediators or clinical negligence mediators. Alternatively you can ask Trust Mediation to appoint the mediator.

The NHSR will consider your request for mediation and, if they agree the case is suitable, will instruct Trust Mediation who will then contact both sides to agree a convenient date and venue.

How do I find out more?

Please read the NHSR mediation procedure which explains how mediation will work.

Why Trust Mediation?

All the Trust Mediation panel members are experienced mediators and personal injury and/or clinical negligence litigators. They have a proven track record, since 2008, of settling on average between 80% and 90% of cases referred to them, including cases where a joint settlement meeting has been tried and failed.
