"The advocate is very approachable and has helped the client to understand a difficult process at a very stressful time. I have also had feedback from clients to say that the advocate is very confident in what she does with a professional and compassionate manner.
The advocate has also provided training for the Solicitors for the Elderly, of which I am a member of. Her training was very clear concise and practical. Her ethos is to get the right answer for the situation at hand and not to give people false hopes but to empower them to understand where the patient is at and why."

Hello, My name is Donna. I joined HAUK at the beginning of 2016, having previously managed a third sector healthcare service provision with MHA. I have a number of years experience of healthcare services including Dementia care provision, Elderly Health and Social care provision, Family Support Work and SEN Teaching. I studied Psychology and teaching at University and have also studied some higher level Social Work and Visual Impairment studies. My motivation for the work I do is to help and support those who may otherwise not know where to find the guidance, help and support that they need.
"The advice given to me by Health Advocacy was very useful. It helped me better understand the assessment process for continuous health care. That included the key things assessors would be looking at and how they arrived at their decisions, the need for solid evidence to support any claim for continuous health care and how I should go about gathering the evidence. The rules round continuous health care are complex and hard to fathom so expert advice is crucial. I know feel much more confident about taking forward a request for more financial support for my mum's care.'
