Resolving disagreement together.
Disagreements about health and social care are complex and can damage relationships between families, patients and professionals. At MMF, our expert team of mediators helps you rebuild relationships and restore trust. Mediation is voluntary and confidential and can be requested by anyone involved in a conflict. We work with you to find a way forward.
Bringing in an external team allowed us to build a better position of trust and provided a clear moment in time to refresh the relationship between medical team and family…..There was something unique and important for the parents about having (mediators) as part of the conversations.

Why choose medical mediation?
Quite simply, because it works. Mediation gives all of those involved an opportunity to have their say in a calm and supportive way.
Compared with court proceedings, mediation is:
- More likely to result in understanding and improved communication between the parties
What does mediation cost?
Every mediation is different. Some cases may need only one meeting, others need more. Once we know what's needed we will provide you with a detailed cost estimate.
…it is my clear view that mediation should be attempted in all cases such as this one even if all that it does is achieve a greater understanding by the parties of each other’s positions.
