Client testimonial

It’s been really useful to work with you (Ylas) you have provided a good balance of positive practice as well as highlighting any issues within the review. I think you have managed to balance the families concerns with the evidence obtained throughout the the review to allow an accurate reflecyoion of all sides. 
This is the first time I have worked with a reviewer outside the NHS but you have made it very easy to discuss the amendments to the review and make necessary changes – thank you for this.
