Planning Ahead?

The thought of planning ahead can leave some people feeling anxious and out of control. There is very little you can do to predict what may happen in the future. However, there are steps you can take to retain some control over it. These steps include making important decisions about what you want to happen should you, for example, lose your mental capacity in the future, or when you die.

The Wills and Estates team at TSP have created a guide to help you understand how you can plan for the future. It explains the nature of the options available to you and the effect on your family and friends if you have these documents in place, and if you do not.

Medical Negligence

In the vast majority of cases medical treatment is carried out very competently. However, accidents do happen, and when an accident is attributed to a medical mistake and you have been injured as a result then a claim for compensation – a Medical Negligence claim (sometimes known as a Clinical Negligence claim) – may be possible. To help you understand whether a claim may be possible and to explain the steps in the process the Clinical Negligence team at TSP have put together a comprehensive guide to Medical Negligence claims.

In the guide you will find detailed information about the different types of Medical Negligence claim and what to do if you believe you or a family member have been a victim of Medical Negligence. The guide also provides useful information about the steps in the Claim Process and the different funding options available.
