We offer our service to all Claimant, clinical negligence and personal injury solicitors and we're happy to accept records via DX, courier or Royal Mail.
Collation & Chronology Service
Medical records are collated in an orderly fashion with an index. The documents are then reviewed and a Chronology prepared (outlining the medical history and detailing the incident/s in question). We also routinely identify any missing records or any further records/documents we believe may assist the specific investigations.
Scanning of Records
We are aware that expert witnesses and Counsel are more often asking for scanned documents to be sent, rather than paper records. Should this be required, the collated records can be scanned and returned as a PDF.
We can provide a draft statement for the client, based on the facts gleaned from the medical records. This will deal with the client’s medical history, together with breach of duty and/or causation.
Schedule of attendance
We provide schedules of attendances, particularly for CP or catastrophic injury claims, outlining the client’s ongoing medical attendances, so that mileage can be included in a Schedule of Loss. This can be a very time-consuming task for the fee earner!
I have been asked to attend Defendant Trusts to inspect original medical records, particularly when there have been failings in disclosure. In view of my personal experience of working within the hospital environments and dealing with original records, this is well within my remit.
In view of my vast experience of medical records, I have been involved in a number of Child Protection matters, particularly Fabricated Induced Illness cases. Records are collated in an orderly fashion, so that these can be easily coordinated during court proceedings or for any medical experts. A Chronology outlining the medical history/treatment is prepared. If indicated, I also provide a memo, highlighting any areas which may require further investigation or consideration.
