1.             Traumatology

Currently involved as a member of a tertiary referral hospital, Hull Royal Infirmary,
which deals with all kinds of major trauma. It is a tertiary Centre receiving trauma
from the various off-shore oil fields by helicopter, plane and the various other
surrounding hospitals around the Hull area. Our catchment area is in the region of 1
million people. There are 9 Consultants and at present we have advertised for a
Chair of Traumatological Orthopaedics, the appointment is likely to take place during
the coming year.

There are 10 Senior Registrars and Registrars on Higher Surgical Training
Programmes from the Academic Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of
Leeds, rotating through the East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire training
Programmes. I am actively involved in the management of trauma in the Fracture
Clinid, operating, ward work and teaching assessment. The hospital is recognised
As an ATLS Centre.

In addition to the Orthopaedic Traumatology, we have in-house 5 Neurosurgeons,
4 Cardio-thoracic Surgeons, 4 Plastic Surgeons and 5 Accident & Emergency
Physicians/Surgeons. The whole Unit is considered to be one of the busiest in the
United Kingdom.

2.             Castle Hill Hospital, East Yorkshire

This Hospital deals with all cold work. My workload involves a considerable degree
of spinal surgery from C.1 down to S.1 undertaking all types of work, traumatology,
tumour, degenerative and, to a certain extent, deformity of the lumbar spine. Both
anterior and posterior work is undertaken. In addition to the spinal work we
do a comprehensive number of total joint replacements involving hip, knee,
shoulder and elbow and other soft tissue procedures ie arthroscopies, etc.

3.     Medical Legal Reporting

as a Senior Registrar and 21 years as a Consultant Orthopaedic and
Spinal Surgeon.

               ** ALL appointments/correspondence should be
               addressed to my Head Office in Hull.


We endeavour to give an appointment date within seven working days
of the letter of instruction. The time scale for seeing the client and
medical assessment is in the region of some 2-4 weeks.

Medical Report

Our intention is to issue the Medical Report within two to three weeks
following the assessment pending availability of the medical records
and radiographs. In urgent circumstances the Report can be issue
earlier with a proviso that a supplementary letter will follow on perusal
of the relevant records.

Woolf Report

I am familiar with the requirements of the Woolf Report. My duty is to
the Court and that on occasions I am required to liaise with other
medical specialists and generate combined statements to fulfil my

Court Appearance

I have regularly appeared in Court to give evidence. The frequency of
this is approximately five to ten times per year although often warned in
excess on some 25-30 occasions.

    Meetings with Counsel

    I have undertaken regular briefs with Counsel in personal discussions
    prior to Court appearances, by telephone, letter and video link


    I have previously lectured to distinguished Solicitors' bodies on mild to
    moderate injuries with respect to personal injury and regularly receive
    repeat invitations for further presentations.


    Fees are negotiable. In general terms dependent on geographical
    venue of the consultation and Medical Report, the difficulty in procuring
    the various records, complexity of cases. Scale varies from £300 per
    Report. For regular instructions and block bookings I am willing to
    negotiate a separate fee scale.

    Fee for Court Appearances

    The fee is £1,200 per day or part of day depending on the geographical
    location of the Hearing. The figure would also include travel expenses
    and accommodation where appropriate.

    Cancellation of Court Hearing, I use a sliding scale. If the case is
    settled within 48 hours of the Hearing - full costs, between 48 hours
    and five working days - 50% of the arranged fee is chargeable.

    Difficulties arise with restructuring of work programmes so close to
    cancellation dates and invariably involves loss of revenue.
