Consultancy

Edge offers an effective and focused consultancy service. We provide this to a variety of organisations and individuals including government bodies, NHS Trusts, local authorities, charities, AMHPs, Social Supervisors, Lead AMHPs and BIAs. It is a way of improving legal compliance by discussing your concerns with an expert in the field. Our consultants are committed to researching widely in order to keep up to date with the latest law and guidance and all have real experience in their field of expertise so they can offer you practical solutions. Consultancy work includes the provision of tailored face-to-face, telephone and written information on a number of specialist areas of mental health, mental capacity and child law.

Examples of previous work include:

  • Guidance to the specialist directorate of a leading NHS Foundation Trust on the development of their policies in relation to aspects of the mental health care and treatment of children and young people.
  • Consultation for the lead AMHP of a large local authority, providing guidance on complex issues of mental health and capacity law.
  • Guidance and suggested amendments on various local authority policies and forms to ensure better legal compliance.

Consultancy is always provided by an experienced member of the Edge team via regular meetings, telephone, email or Skype.
