Area of work:



I provide medico legal reports for companies of solicitors and insurance companies in all parts of the UK.

My area of expertise is Adult Orthopaedics and Trauma but I have a particular interest in knee and shoulder injuries. I have research interests in the outcome of knee replacement surgery and have prepared reports in cases of alleged negligence in this area and in cases of knee and shoulder trauma.

I see clients at two clinics in Edinburgh (The Edinburgh Clinic Tuesday am and Murrayfield Hospital Thursday am).

Appointments can be made by contacting my PA Christine Kennedy who will assist in providing appointments for your clients usually within three weeks and will deal promptly with all enquiries. I aim to produce a final report within two weeks of seeing claimants as long as all relevant records are available. I am fully compliant with GDPR.
