Practical Advice and Advocacy to Reduce Stress and Enable Recovery

We know that this is a stressful time for you. You may be pressured to make decisions about your own health or that of a loved one very quickly.

You need a quick and effective resolution to ensure that you or your family member receives the appropriate care - that is where our patient advocacy service comes in.

Depending on the circumstances, we will determine the appropriate course of action, which may involve corresponding or meeting with the health care providers on your behalf, and/or raising your concerns with the relevant regulatory body.
