Care consultancy and solicitors' services - Relative Matters, West Sussex

Solicitor with two woman

Services for Solicitors and Lawyers

We offer professional advice on the complexities of the care system including legislative, Local Authority and NHS policy changes, to support your legal responsibilities.

Our experienced multi-disciplinary team of consultants includes Social Work Consultants, Occupational Therapists and Nurses, with experience in NHS Continuing Health Care, who work with you and your clients to identify the most suitable cost-effective and sustainable care and support solutions.

It is not the best use of a busy professional’s time and it makes sense to hand this task over to an expert in the field – someone with the experience and contacts to sort through the options quickly and present an evidence-based report on a range of well-researched choices, for a competitive fee.
