FOLLOW WRIGLEYS:

Wrigleys represent many elderly, disabled and otherwise vulnerable people in their efforts to secure care services from social services departments and the NHS.

Preventing and resolving disputes in health and social care

Wrigleys are specialists in helping people to obtain the services they need and represent them when problems arise.

Caring for people and cutting services - a recipe for error

Public authorities must balance their legal duties to meet the needs of vulnerable people against a chronic lack of funds to do this well. The result is that community care decisions may be borderline, unfair or wrong. Our advice is, don't just accept what you are told.

Our most common queries concern:

  • Eligibility for NHS continuing care.
  • Disputes over the means testing of residential care.
  • Should a relative stay at home or go into residential care?
  • Should we be paying this care fees top up?
  • Direct payments are just not enough to meet needs.
  • Councils cutting services.
  • Guidance for those wanting to navigate the system.

Effective challenges at a sensible and proportionate cost

There are relatively inexpensive ways of challenging decisions using the appropriate complaints and dispute resolution procedures.

We know that community care decisions are of the greatest significance in the lives of vulnerable people, their carers and relatives and Wrigleys are dedicated to providing effective and cost efficient advice and representation.

 

"Wrigleys is well known for its strong tax planning base, and for personal injuries trusts and trusts for vulnerable people including Court of Protection issues and deputyships.
