An Introduction to TMLEP
TMLEP is an independent clinical practice consisting of over 1,500 leading medical practitioners, technology specialists and clinical investigators. The practice works with a number of public and private organisations in the healthcare sector, providing an array of clinical and technological services which have the common aim of improving patient care and safety across the globe.
TMLEP was originally founded as a clinical response to the rising number of claims and complaints being brought against healthcare providers and clinicians in the UK and, increasingly across the globe. TMLEP developed a unique investigation process which allows complaints and claims to be thoroughly investigated, helping to achieve a swift resolution and ensuring that recommendations for improvement can be made.
To further assist in the continual improvement of healthcare standards, TMLEP also develops and provides an array of specialist clinical technologies which improve claims and complaints management capabilities and provide organisations with a better view and understanding of clinical risk.
