Area of work:



I am a UK qualified Registered Medical Practitioner with over 29 years working experience in General Medical Practice, Occupational health and Clinical forensic medicine.

I have achieved foundation Membership of the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine and am a member of the Expert Witness Institute. I have also been awarded the Cardiff University Bond Solon Certificate (Criminal Law) by examination. I regularly undertake work as an expert medical court witness accepting instruction from the prosecution, defence and regulatory bodies.

I regularly prepare expert reports in cases concerning the interpretation of injuries in cases of wounding and also undertake sexual offence case work in cases involving both adults and children. I regularly review digital colposcopic SARC images when undertaking such work and discuss findings in meetings with other paediatric or sexual offences forensic experts.

I also advise police in the custodial setting on medical reasons that account for drivers failing to provide specimens of breath or blood or urine in relation to traffic offences. This includes the evaluation of medical excuses for drivers who fail to provide specimens of breath or blood (including the assessment of needle phobia).

I have summarised below the categories of cases in which I have the necessary expertise to prepare expert medical reports.

1. Injury interpretation - Evaluation of causation and degree of force uses and ageing of bruising. Assault and wounding /ABH/GBH/ attempted murder, blunt force injury, sharp force injury including injury from broken glass and fatal and non-fatal knife stab and slash wounds, throttling and ligature strangulation and suicidal hanging, evaluation of self-inflicted injuries (both suicidal and non-suicidal). Evaluation of defence type injuries. Evaluation of bite-mark injuries. Interpretation of road traffic-collision injuries.

2. Evaluation of physical evidence of torture for the Asylum Courts (scar interpretation reports) in accordance with the Manual on the Effective Investigation and Documentation of Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. (“Istanbul Protocol” 2004).

3. Evaluation of Non-accidental injury, bruising and other injuries in children including bruise age estimation and consistency of injuries with reported accounts.

4. Drink and drug driving cases in which the driver has failed to provide the required specimen of breath, blood or urine for analysis / evaluation of genuine medical excuse for failing to provide. Including the evaluation of needle phobia.

5. Sexual offence case work in adult cases of vaginal rape, anal rape, oral rape, digital penetration and sexual assault

6. Sexual offence case work in child cases of vaginal rape, anal rape, oral rape, digital penetration and sexual assault.

7. Evaluation of injuries sustained by detainees and police officers during arrest / evaluation of use of reasonable force by arresting officers.

8. Medical negligence - clinical negligence relating to forensic medical examiners and forensic nurses working in the police custody environment.

9. Deaths in custody investigation.

Report submission can usually be expected within 7 to14 days of receipt of the relevant medical information. Reports can of course be prepared more urgently in accordance with the urgency of court listings.

I can undertake medical assessments in consultation rooms in London or alternatively undertake visits to solicitor’s firms or prison or home visits if necessary. I have considerable flexibility in making the necessary arrangements to attend courts around the country if court attendance proves necessary.
