We provide services to investigate the technical and medical aspects of matters and gather evidential material to prepare a preliminary screening report, a medico-legal or forensic report. The report is presented in a format which encapsulates the crisp issues and identifies appropriate technical experts to consult.

He is also a registered Teaching Assistant in Medical Law and Ethics at the School of Law, University of Manchester, a Council Member of the Medico Legal Society of Great Britain and is a volunteer with AvMA in Croydon. In October 2018 he became registered as a specialist personal injury / clinical negligence and medicolegal Mediator with the Civil Mediation Council having completed a Mediation course with the London School of Mediation in July 2018.
He also participated in the pro bono Mediation programme in August and September 2019 organised through the auspices of the Society of Mediators and the Royal Courts of Justice, London.
We are committed to remaining up to date on all matters and issues related to the medicolegal field and as a result we attend seminars and conferences the most recent being the AvMA Conferences in Brighton in July 2016 and 2018.
