Clinical Negligence

For obvious reasons, clinical negligence mediation (sometimes known as medical malpractice mediation) is one of the most emotion-driven forms of mediation.

Global Mediation has a team of highly experienced and skilled mediators who act neutrally and independently, sensitive to the needs of the parties. Using mediation enables parties to discuss remedies not available in court, including fast dispute resolution; improving clinical processes and procedures; avoiding damaging publicity; apologies or compensation where appropriate and the ability to restore relationships and trust.

Our mediators will establish the key issues to be discussed in a confidential, safe environment and they work hard to facilitate an outcome to which both parties can agree. After successful mediation, parties are more able to move on with their lives quickly and free of protracted, unwanted stress.
