Lord Woolf’s Access to Justice Reforms 1999 recommended that certain types of pre-hearings could take place by telephone.

Founder and owner of Kidatu Ltd Helen Roberts played a key role in development and launch of the original hearing service by telephone and teleconferencing today continues to offer invaluable benefits of improved efficiency, reduced costs and an effective way of reducing your carbon footprint.

The Ministry of Justice is currently considering extending the use of conference calling to ease pressure on the courts and further improve efficiency in the civil justice system.


Kidatu is proud to provide free conference calling to the staff of the East Anglian Air Ambulance which completed over 30 thousand rescue missions since its launch in 2000.
