TTL Health Law has decades of experience and expertise in the representation and assistance of health care professionals who are faced with responding to complaints, allegations and criticisms which are occupational hazards of the workplace today.

Timely accessible advice even for the most mundane appearing complaints is an essential protective step and can avoid escalation of a complaint to a more serious, threatening and anxiety provoking proceeding down the road. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure whenever you are faced with a complaint to your regulatory body. It is fundamentally inadvisable to ever put pen to paper, no matter how tempted in such circumstances, without obtaining experienced legal advice.
