Medico-Legal Assessments

Expert Medico-Legal Consultant

I have been producing medical reports for the past 5 years and specialise in all aspects of cardiac surgery. These reports include aspects relating to surgical care and those following trauma to the structures of the chest.

The reports are approximately equally divided between defendant and claimant. Turn around time for reports is 20 working days or less depending on the complexity of the report

I am based in London at the London Bridge Hospital and St. Barts’ Hospital. I trained and qualified at King’s College Hospital in 1989 and was appointed as Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon at St. Barts’ Hospital, London in 2003.

Terms, conditions and fees are available on request.
