Inquest? Talk to Ridouts

After the death of a service user, an inquest may take place. This can have a negative impact on your service and business.

Findings of neglect, negative conclusions and reputational damage can follow.

Ridouts can help you to minimise the risk of damage to your business.

We can assist health and social care providers:
  • to obtain a status which allows them to actively participate in an inquest
  • by advising on the evidence & taking witness statements
  • by making legal representations to the Coroner
We work with you to understand key issues at play and help to minimise risks that might arise.​

The Ridouts Team can work with you each step of the way
