Online Access for (ISW) Services.
This service has been designed to provide solicitors, barristers and Local Authorities with rapid access to the CV's and availability of our ISWs when they need to agree those services as soon as possible (for example, when they are in a court setting). It provides additional reassurance that deadlines and submission dates for assessments can be met.
Professionals simply sign up to the service and once approved can access the ISW information on their laptops, tablets or mobile telephones.
