Slater and Gordon collaborate with charity, ICUsteps, to create legal brochure

We have collaborated with charity, ICUsteps, to create a legal brochure, offering important legal advice.

21 May 2024

At Slater and Gordon, we pride ourselves on supporting charities with the legal advice they might require. One of which is ICUsteps, an intensive care patient charity. With an aim to support patients and relatives who are affected by critical illness, they also promote the recognition of physical and psychological consequences that critical illness has through education and encourage research into treatment and the prevention of these issues.

With our experience, we’re aware of the many legal difficulties individuals with critical illnesses and their families can go through and how complex they are to navigate. During this time, it can be confusing to know where to start, which is why as the start of an ongoing collaboration with ICUsteps, we have launched a brochure detailed with legal services and advice for those who are recovering from a critical illness, should you ever need it.

Dr Christina Jones, a trustee of ICUsteps says: “As a trustee, I have been involved in support groups for patients recovering from critical illness and their families. Legal issues such as problems returning to work or lasting power of attorney have frequently come up to the discussions. With the expertise of Slater and Gordon and feedback from patients and family members we now have an information booklet about legal issues which is easy to read and very helpful.”

Within the brochure, it simplifies some common legal needs that recovering ICU patients and their families may encounter and explains what to do in several unique circumstances. You will find easy to understand explanations of certain legal practices such as family law, employment law and wills and trusts, as well as specialist legal advice that can be applied to your situation.

If you require tailored legal advice on any of the issues discussed, please don’t hesitate to reach out to a specialist qualified solicitor. At Slater and Gordon, we pride ourselves on being able to offer expert legal advice across several practice areas.
