Medico Legal

I accept instructions as an Expert Witness in Ophthalmology and aim to provide prompt, high quality, stand-alone medical reports. I am listed in The UK Law Society's Directory of Expert Witnesses and a member of The Academy of Experts.

My service includes:

  • Completed reports within four weeks of accepting instructions with all relevant documents – but a faster turnaround is possible in urgent cases.
  • Access to the full range of diagnostic services (refraction, visual fields, photography including retinal and corneal imaging, ocular electrophysiology, orthoptics and biometry.
  • Enhanced service in the documentation of contentious or disputed visual injury.

Faced with a potentially exaggerated claim for loss, examinations to a strict protocol can reduce doubt considerably.

  • Attendance at conferences in person, by telephone and online.
  • Advisory reports in professional disciplinary proceedings as well as challenges to decisions. I have acted as an advisor to the GMC and frequently provide reports for investigations by regulatory bodies including the Association of Optometrists, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the General Optical Council, The Ombudsman and the GMC.

A copy of my CV is posted on this website here, and I can send my full terms of business on request. I will accept instructions on these terms via agencies and I will modify my terms of business, by agreement, prior to formally accepting instructions.
