Be part of the UK’s leading team of medical experts
Whether you’re an experienced medico-legal expert or you’re entering the sector for the first time, we provide comprehensive medical expert witness training, mentoring and full administrative support every step of the way.
Experienced clinicians often consider working as expert witnesses as they become established in their careers, usually after gaining around ten years of experience. With medico-legal work typically carried out by consultants in addition to NHS clinics and private practice, working as a medical expert witness allows doctors and specialist therapists to expand their knowledge and experience in their field.
Medical expert witnesses work with leading solicitors, barristers and legal teams, providing client reports, services and testimony for claimant and defendant cases. You will consider an individual’s presentation, rehabilitation potential, and the impact of the injury on their life and future.
At NRC Medical Experts, we’re dedicated to mentoring and supporting the next generation of expert witnesses within neurological rehabilitation – covering brain and spinal injury, stroke, and neurodisability. An experienced expert witness will support you to become a medical expert.
Whether you’re an experienced medico-legal expert or entering the sector for the first time, we provide comprehensive expert witness training, continuous professional development, mentoring, and complete administrative support.
“There is a huge amount of knowledge to be gained and shared from medico-legal cases – as doctors, we learn when we do this work, and I feel it makes me a better doctor. Supporting medico-legal clients gives me an enormous range of professional knowledge about how different people can be impacted over the long term by even minor neurological injuries.”
Dr Ganesh Bavikatte, Consultant and Clinical Lead in Neurorehabilitation medicine, NRC Medical Experts
