The WSC Medico-Legal concept was developed in order to provide a support framework for our Expert Witnesses who offer a wide range of medico-legal services. This arrangement ensures that the individual Expert Witness benefits from excellent administration services in addition to regular peer review and supervision, thus providing a platform for continuous professional development and quality assurance.
We endeavour to ensure that our service and reports meet the following standards:
- Provision of a highly professional, responsive and client centred approach to instructing legal teams, whilst acknowledging and reflecting the needs of the Claimant within the clinical context.
- Our medico-legal reports endeavour to be understandable, well-balanced, robust and evidenced based complying with Civil Procedure Rules part 35.
- Provision of a fast efficient service; reports are prepared within 8 weeks of visiting the Claimant but more urgent work can be accommodated upon request.
- All expert witness reports are quality checked to ensure presentation accuracy; all questions presented by the instructing party have been answered and the report complies with the Civil Procedure Rules.
