ENT Medicolegal Expert Witness

Welcome to ENT Medicolegal Expert, the website relating to Professor Tim Woolford’s specialist medicolegal practice.
Professor Woolford recognises that solicitors require experts who keep to an agreed timeframe. He provides reports which give a clear, concise medicolegal opinion based on an understanding of current Civil Procedure Rules.

Personal communication to clarify key aspects of a case is often helpful, particularly in complex cases. Professor Woolford is therefore happy to discuss cases with solicitors prior to instruction at no cost, or as cases move forward.

Clinical Practice:

As a Consultant ENT Surgeon for over 20 years, I led a busy clinical service at the University ENT Department at the Manchester Royal Infirmary, and I was awarded two national NHS Clinical Excellence Awards. After retiring from the NHS in 2021, I continue to see patients with a wide range of ear, nose & throat conditions in my private practice at Spire Manchester Hospital.

Medicolegal Practice:

I have over 20 years’ medicolegal experience relating to most aspects of ear, nose & throat surgery and related personal injury. I have provided expert testimony for numerous high value medical negligence cases acting for both claimant and defendant, and I have courtroom experience.

I am also a Trustee of the British Rhinological Society. I have previously been Academic Chair for the British Academic Conference in ENT, and a Royal College of Surgeons Examiner in Otorhinolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
