Conflict Resolution Process

The Forensic Network developed a process for resolving clinical conflicts between forensic mental health services in 2005. This became Scottish Government Policy in HDL (2006) 48, Annex C. The process aims to assist services in Scotland to find a suitable resolution within a reasonable timeframe.

The process is managed by the Conflict Resolution Group which is chaired by the Lead Clinician of the Forensic Network and involves three stages, Initial Resolution; Referral to Conflict Resolution Group and Judgement.

Any information or queries about the process is available from Forensic Network Manager, Nicol Shadbolt, nicol.shadbolt@nhs.net
