I am regularly asked to provide Fitness to Practice Reports by the General Medical Council, and also "short form"/screening reports for the NHS Litigation Authority and other agencies.
I offer a prompt service and usually undertake to return a report within 4 weeks of accepting instructions. I am happy to accept instructions for personal injury, clinical negligence, and condition and prognosis reports.
