Medical Negligence Reports

Medico-Legal Chambers was established in 2000, having evolved from Philip Coleridge Smith’s own medico-legal practice. At that time agencies were being established to provide medico-legal reports and it became clear that experts working together could provide the range of services required by solicitors and barristers.
