Medicolegal reporting

 

 

Medicolegal

I have produced personal injury and clinical negligence expert reports for 14 years. I have also provided reports for the Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman, and the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman. I include medico-legal work as part of my annual Continued Professional Development. I have attended the "Bond Solon Cardiff University Expert Witness Training" course in 2020.

Locations / on-line consultation
Claimants can be seen at The Nuffield Hospital in Cambridge, and the Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital, Impington (or if appropriate via video-link).

Conditions reviewed
My medicolegal work is reflective of my ongoing NHS practice. I regularly treat hand trauma , lower limb trauma, nerve injuries, and scars. Children’s surgery is part of my NHS practice. I have undertaken level 3 child safeguarding training.

I provide:

  • An up-to date expert report supported by available evidence, with an opinion that is objective, mature, and balanced
  • A report that is succinct, focused, and analytical, with an assessment of the consequences of the injury, prognosis and future risk
  • An appreciation of the implications of, and compliance with, the reforms carried out by Lord Justice Jackson
  • The majority of reports are completed within two weeks of the appointment, correspondence or requests for amendment are dealt with promptly
  • My fees can be downloaded from this website

Recent medicoleagal reports have included:

  • Inadvertent division of a tendon during elective hand surgery: cinical negligence
  • A crush injury sustained by a cyclist in her 20's run-over by a lorry: personal injury with review of the possible reconstructive options

  • A fall at work resulting in a ligamentous injury to the wrist of a builder in his 20's: personal injury with review of the possible salvage options and the associated prognosis
  • A fall at work resulting in a wrist fracture: clinical negligence with review of the standard of care that should be expected for this type of injury
  • A blast injury from faulty maintenance of a domestic applience causing lower limb scarrin: personal injury with review of the prognosis and possible surgical options to improve the appearance of the scar
