Section 7 - Legal advice, etc.
13.This section sets out that Welsh Ministers may make any provisions they think fit in regulations for the provision of legal advice or other services, including expert medical opinion, to people using the redress arrangements (subsection 1). The regulations must at the very least ensure that people have access to legal advice about any offer, refusal to make an offer or any settlement agreement (subsection 2). Subsection (3) sets out that the regulations may specify that whoever provides legal advice should be included in a list. Subsection (4) provides that if the advice of a medical expert is to be commissioned, then effectively this would be done jointly by the NHS body and the individual seeking redress.
