Our services cover the following areas:

Corporate investigations: our workplace expertise helps identify fraud and corporate malpractice, including sickness absence, expenses, theft, misuse of time and resources, shadow businesses, misreporting and whistleblowing.

NHS investigations: we have years of experience in advising healthcare providers to provide fast and thorough investigations to help maintain quality patient care. Typically, our investigations in this area cover disciplinary and performance issues, grievances, bullying, dignity at work, as well as equality and diversity issues.

We have specialist expertise in investigations relating to the conduct of NHS clinicians with reference to the requirements of the MHPS.

HR investigations: our expertise typically covers investigations into allegations of unlawful discrimination, victimisation and harassment, all of which often involve complex and multiple complaints.

Whistleblowing: we provide key whistleblowing services to assist in this increasingly common method of uncovering fraud, breaches of regulations and other malpractices. Our confidential and fixed cost service addresses employee concerns and allows discreet reporting on an anonymous basis, including out-of-hoyurs. All data is securely held and can be tracked to provide regular reporting, helping you identify business areas of greatest risk.
