Ask the Experts - Community Care Law Q&A Sessions

The ‘New Normal’: Community Care Law and the Lasting Impact of Covid-19.

“The Coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on both health and social care services nationally. As restrictions ease and the country gradually adapts to the ‘new normal’, the lasting impact and the challenges that lie ahead for Community Care law are beginning to emerge. The effect is likely to be long-term and it is important that private client lawyers are aware of how their client’s Care and Support will be affected.”  – Cate Searle

Cate Searle and our Community Care Law team are hosting a fortnightly Q&A session on Zoom on alternate Wednesdays from 2pm – 3pm. Please RSVP to book into any of the Q&A sessions in July and August 2020.

Cate and her team will answer your questions including:

  • The lasting effect of the Coronavirus Act 2020 and the Care Act Easements on your client’s Care and Support package.
  • The consequences of the Covid-19 Hospital Discharge Requirements on the Paying for Care rules and your client’s Right to Choice
