Medico-legal Experience. I have acted as an expert witness in 4-5 cases per annum for the last five years. I have tried to increase my practice in the last year and have been instructed in one case each month, or so. The cases on which I have reported include medical negligence and personal injury cases where I have acted for the plaintiff or claimant in all cases except one (for NHS Lothian in the Court of Session in Edinburgh.). I have acted for the crown as an expert in two criminal cases and for the defendant in one. I have experience of occupational health cases including chemical carcinogenesis. I have been involved in cases including conferences with counsel and conferences of experts. I have not been crossexamined as an expert witness but I do have previous experience of appearing as a witness of fact. I would consider myself an expert opinion in general urology and urological cancer diagnosis and treatment. Terms. Depending on the complexity of cases, and needs of the instructing lawyer, I would turn around report work in one to four weeks. I charge £200 per hour and would invoice £800 to £1200 for a report. My rate for court appearance is the same which is to say £1200 to £1600 per day. In the event of cancellation I would seek a cancellation charge at the full rate of the attendance fee if cancellation or rescheduling of attendance occurred within seven days of the court date. I would levy a fee at 50% of the full rate in the event of cancellation or rescheduling between seven and fourteen days before the court date. Education. George Heriot’s School Edinburgh. University of Edinburgh (MBChB 1985) (MD 1998) Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (FRCS 1991) (FRCS(Urol) 1999) I completed my basic surgical training in Scotland. My doctoral thesis was on the biochemistry of prostate disease (“beta-NGF and the low-affinity NGF receptor in BPH and prostate cancer,”) and was completed in Edinburgh. My higher training in Urology was in Manchester (1995-1999). Clinical Practice I work in a large teaching hospital and have a general urological practice there and in the private sector. My clinical subspecialty interest is in pelvic resectional surgery for urological cancers and I would perform 35 to 60 such operations per annum. Publications and Research.
