I am a Director of Moore & Tibbits and Head of the Health and Community Care team having qualified as a Solicitor in 2000.
I am sure that you cannot have missed the ongoing public debates and concerns about health and social care – I have spent the last 20 years working in this challenging and diverse area and have a wealth of experience in supporting vulnerable adults and their families as they try to navigate the broken care and education system.
In recent years, I have developed our multi-disciplinary team which provides a one-stop source of legal advice for all things health and social care. I have recruited a full time nurse and former CHC assessor, an Advocate who retrained to become a lawyer, a solicitor who was previously a senior local authority lawyer in Adult Social Care and solicitors with litigation backgrounds. This enables me to ensure that a client has access to the team member who can offer the most relevant legal/clinical advice and representation for their circumstances.
I work across a wide range of areas in Education law, Health and Community Care and, having personal experience battling with public authorities to secure the right level of support for my own son, I have a particular interest in working with young people and their families as they transition from Children to Adult Services.
I regularly attend best interest meetings and CHC assessments and also advise as to the lawfulness of assessments and EHC plans. I am often involved in challenging local authority or CCG decisions, particularly when such decisions are influenced by a lack of resources and result in proposed cuts to packages of care or a possible change in accommodation.
In addition, I and various members of the team regularly provide advice and training to charities and support groups and also run legal clinics throughout Warwickshire and beyond.
If you have any questions regarding the level of support you or your loved one is receiving or how it is funded, we can offer free initial advice. Please call Debbie on 01926 354704 to talk through your options.
