Comprehensive Medico-Legal Reports by experienced clinicians

What are Expert Witness and
Medico-Legal Reports?

Medico-Legal reports are documents that provide an independent and evidence-based opinion on an individual's physical, psychological or psychiatric condition. Our Harley Street Psychiatrists are able to prepare a wide range of reports for solicitors, barristers, courts and tribunal services on behalf of claimants and defendants. We understand the need for reports to be conducted in a timely manner and will work with you to ensure that your deadlines are met.

Fees and timescales for reports

Due to the varying nature of medico-legal reports, we are unable to provide a fixed cost for our reporting service.

You can start the process by simply calling us, or contacting us using the below form. One of our clinicians will then contact you to gather the relevant information and timescales required to calculate the costs for the report.

We are aware that many reports require immediate attention, and therefore we will only provide a quote if we are able to meet your deadline

We will always give a fixed delivery date for your report
