I work part time in the field of NHS General Adult Psychiatry.
I also undertake approximately one hundred medico legal assessments per annum. Five percent of these are in criminal matters; the rest are in civil litigation. Of those undertaken in civil litigation, approximately twenty to thirty per cent have been instructed by defendants and seventy to eighty per cent are for the plaintiff. Currently ten to twenty per cent are jointly instructed.
I undertake work in the field of General Adult Psychiatry with specific reference to Post Traumatic Stress Reactions, Road Traffic Accidents, Industrial Injury, and reaction to physical injury.
I report on cases of alleged medical negligence.
I have experience in assessments for Mental Capacity, Testamentary Capacity, Child Protection, Marital work and in Obstetric cases.
I also have expertise in cases of Occupational Injury(mental health), Employment Tribunals, Work related stress claims, Disability Discrimination claims, and Immigration matters.
I have experience of attending Court and Tribunals to give evidence in these matters.
