 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR MEDICO-LEGAL WORK

  • My charging rate is £300 per hour.
  • In addition to my fee for consultation and preparation of the report, it is sometimes necessary to organise special investigations at additional cost in order to complete the medico-legal report.  In general, I will go ahead with simple audiological tests, such as a pure tone audiogram and tympanometry at the time of the consultation, if indicated.  In some cases, fibreoptic endoscopic examination of the nose or throat is indicated as part of the examination, and this would normally be done at the same time as the consultation.  Other common, but more expensive tests, such as an MRI scan or balance tests will only be carried out after consultation with the Instructing solicitors.
  • Charge for additional tests, such as audiological tests, X-rays or scans or balance tests will not be included in my fees, and will be invoiced separately by the hospital or the Audiologist involved.
  • My waiting time for appointments for medico-legal consultation is approximately  4 weeks, and I would usually expect to be able to provide a report within a further 4 weeks if the appropriate medical records are made available.
  • Please note that I require 8 weeks notice for attendance at Court in order to cancel booked clinical activities.  This is the time period now requested by all NHS employing authorities.
  • My charging rate for attendance at Court is £1200 per half day or part thereof plus travelling expenses.
  • If the Court case is cancelled within 2 weeks of the expected date, then my fee for attendance at Court will still need to be paid as it would not be possible to reinstate other work within such a short time frame.
  • I am always happy to discuss any aspect of the case or the Terms and Conditions and can be best contacted via my private medical secretary, Mrs Beverley Bloor on Tel: 0117 9804050 or email: beverley.bloor@spirehealthcare.com.
