I have been an expert witness for court since 1996, during which time I have prepared over 1000 medico-legal reports.

I also assess the psychological impact of alleged clinical negligence, occupational stress, and the effects of interpersonal crime on victims.
I have experience of giving evidence in court, and attend medico-legal training events.
