Training and Webinars

NB. We need to call your attention to its being a term of Care and Health Law's training services that you must be willing to receive occasional e-mails from us after the service has been provided, telling you about other products and services of this company and trusted others. We promise you will not be unreasonably bombarded with them. You will be given an opt-out opportunity, whenever we send them, as the law requires.

Now that the Act is in force for new customers, we are interested in meeting your organisation's ongoing training needs for specialist Care Act interface topics:


These are our specialist legal framework courses, either 1 day long or half day, for the rest of 2016

Of course, we also offer standard assessment, eligibility (1 day) + care planning, budgets and review training (1 day) - but you might have had enough of them, at this point!

  • Care Act for Mental Health Trust staff
  • Health and Social Care interface – hospital discharge, continuing nhs health care and community services
  • Contracting and Commissioning
  • Ordinary Residence and Continuity (can cover the more complex s117 rules as well)

Care and Health Law's courses run by Belinda's national team of Care Act trainers work well for groups of up to 35 for £850 plus (half day course) or £1150 (full day) in 2016, (inclusive of travel etc but ex VAT). Belinda costs a bit more.


All training is delivered by the Care and Health Law Training Team, made up of experienced trainers, social work practitioners and legally qualified members, depending on topic, under Belinda's supervision and ongoing professional updating.
