parties. 258 Independent person(s) helping to resolve disagreements will need a range of experience, knowledge and qualifications, including for example: training and experience in disagreement resolution, e.g. mediation; counselling and negotiating skills; the ability to establish and maintain effective communications; knowledge of ALN legislation, associated regulations, this Code and other relevant educational issues; and the capacity to maintain confidentiality and have no vested interest. 18.30 This list is not exhaustive. 18.31 The person should not have been previously been involved with the child, family or young person and should have no vested interest in the outcome. The independent person can help parties discuss the disagreement and find a mutually acceptable solution. The involvement of health bodies in avoiding and resolving disagreement arrangements 18.32 Whilst the child, child’s parent or young person is engaging in the local authorities’ avoiding disagreement arrangements, or resolving disagreement arrangements, the local authority should consider whether it would be beneficial to involve the relevant NHS body in these arrangements. This might be where the child, child’s parent or young person raises concerns in relation to health, or ALP which a health body is responsible for. 18.33 When a local authority believes it would be beneficial for a health body to be involved in avoidance and disagreement resolution arrangements, they should contact the relevant DECLO to seek their advice. This should form part of the DECLO’s role (see Chapter 12). 18.34 The DECLO should consider whether the involvement of health bodies in the arrangements can help to resolve disagreements and partake in the arrangements where they believe this to be the case. 18.35 As well as using the local authorities’ avoidance of disagreement arrangements and disagreement resolution arrangements, where there is a concern surrounding the involvement of health, or the provision provided by NHS bodies, then the child, child’s parent or young person should be encouraged to discuss their concern with the health provider. 18.36 The Welsh Government has put in place arrangements for the management of concerns and complaints relating to the NHS in Wales: Putting Things Right. 259 Putting Things Right is based upon an integrated 258 Section61(3) of the Act. 259 Putting things right can be found at: http://www.wales.nhs.uk/sites3/home.cfm?orgid=932 Page | 174

approach, bringing together the management of complaints, incidents and claims and is based upon the principle ‘investigate once, investigate well.’ 18.37 Where it becomes apparent to the local authority that the concern/disagreement/complaint concerns health, then the local authority should direct the child, child’s parent or young person towards the NHS’ Putting Things Right. The local authorities’ arrangements and Putting Things Right can be used in parallel. 18.38 Where the child, child’s parent or young person wants to use Putting Things Right, if they feel confident to do so, they should be encouraged to raise their concern directly with the staff who are providing the ALP delivered by the health service. NHS staff should try to sort out the concern immediately. Where the child, child’s parent or young person does not think this has resolved the problem, or they do not want to talk about their concern directly to the member of staff responsible for delivering the ALP, they should be directed to contact a member of the concerns team. This will be someone from the local health board or relevant NHS Trust. 18.39 If the child, child’s parent or young person’s concern has been looked at by NHS and they are still not happy with the response, they would be able to contact the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales. Interrelationship with the Tribunal 18.40 Using disagreement resolution arrangements, or deciding not to use them, does not affect rights to appeal to the Tribunal. No inference will be drawn by the Tribunal if the child, child’s parent or young person involved in the disagreement has not used the disagreement resolution arrangement. 18.41 Disagreement resolution meetings are confidential and without prejudice to the Tribunal process. The Tribunal may cover similar ground to that explored through the disagreement resolution arrangement but will reach its own independent findings and conclusions. Partial agreement achieved by using such arrangements can help to focus on the remaining areas of disagreement in any subsequent appeal to the Tribunal. 18.42 Following an appeal, the local authority’s arrangements could also support the family and local authority to work together and prevent further disagreements. Independent Advocacy Services 18.43 The Act requires that a child, or young person has access to independent advocacy services to support the avoidance and resolution of Page | 175
