The MTSP is free to all trauma patients at the hospitals where we work. You will never be asked to pay for any of the services we provide to a patient or their family. Cardinal Management who operate the MTSP at each hospital, receives a significant proportion of its funding from members of the legal panel who are associated to each hospital. The funding is used to provide the MTSP service to all patients, irrespective of whether they require legal advice, in fact, over 75% of the patients who access the MTSP service do not require legal advice.
The MTSP Advisers in each hospital are not incentivised to recommend to a patient they take up legal advice, they are there to support patients and their families who are having a bad day and to make it a little bit better.
