Medico-Legal Service

Medical reporting can be an important source of revenue for consultants undertaking work of this nature. Too often, such reports are typed by those who are stretched to the limit by their primary duties or who find the task tiresome.

Medico-legal Typing ServiceWe provide a regular medico-legal service to a number of consultant users and we are experienced in the preparation of different styles of medical report in most medical and surgical specialities. We are also able to provide an "overload" or temporary "emergency medico-legal typing service" to assist your regular staff during busy periods or at times of sickness and holiday - see Secretarial Back-up for further details

We will produce a medical report using your own template or design a template for you which satisfies the current CPR requirements.

In addition, we are equipped to deal with the administrative functions involved in the running of a medico-legal practice, including liaison with reporting companies, negotiation of your fees, if required, making and sending appointments and invoicing for your work.

We can even assist if you are starting out in medico-legal practice by marketing your services to reporting companies and solicitors and by managing your application to join the panel of experts of the major UK medico-legal reporting companies.
