NHS East Lancashire Case Study
Karen Bailey set up an internal mediation scheme for NHS East Lancashire. Over an 18 month period, 23 conflicts went to mediation. Of these, 22 concluded in written mediation agreements. This not only equates to a 96% success rate, as a consequence of embracing the scheme, NHS East Lancashire realised an initial cost-saving of £213,753.
