This page is for posting a single question about how the legal framework operates, or what the law says about something to do with health or social services/care.
It’s not for asking for advice about your or your relative’s dispute with a public body, for which we need a Referral Form, please. Click here.
There are hundreds of questions in our database that have been asked of us, over the years.
You can search for particular words in our Q&A Collection using the Q&A Search Box below, or use the ‘whole site’ Search function in our Database (click here to access) which will bring up any other posts about previously decided Court cases or other material, including our analysis of Ombudsman’s decisions on complaints involving that word.
Or – at the bottom of this Page in the Categories section, you can select all the questions on a particular topic, already answered and filed away on that area of the law. Note this section is a work in progress, the search is the best way to find answers at the moment.
If you have a question that doesn’t appear to have been answered as yet, please use the Submit a Question Form below to ask a question, for consideration for being added to our Q&As. You won’t see it appear immediately, as we do have to check all questions posted – but you’ll be notified if you get a response to your question, or you can look back here, a few days later….
The Recent Questions section, directly below these navigation suggestions, contains the questions most recently asked by members of the public – so these give an indication as to what’s topical.
