I prepare medicolegal reports at the request of independent solicitors, NHS Resolution (formerly the NHS Litigation Authority), and the medical defence societies.
I have also appeared at the Coroners Court as an expert, at the request of HM Coroners.
My aim is to complete reports within 2-3 months of receiving all documentation. I take on only those cases pertinent to my particular specialty in paediatric respiratory medicine. My fees are £300 per hour.
In the last few years my work has been divided as around 90% claimant / 10% defendant. I have extensive experience of attending meetings with other experts and counsel, including videoconferences. I have also attended Court, although obviously less often as almost all cases have settled or not proceeded.
I have been instructed by many of the agencies on behalf of solicitors, including Premex, Stewart House, UK Expert Medical, MAPS Medical reporting.
I have attended a variety of courses including professional report writing and conduct as an expert witness in court, and am in the Law Society Directory of Expert Witnesses.
I am an accredited Mediator, having trained at the London School of Mediation.
