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.
