ENT Medico-Legal Expert Witness
Welcome to ENT Medico-Legal Expert, the website relating to Professor Tim Woolford’s specialist medico-legal practice.
Professor Woolford recognises that solicitors require experts who keep to an agreed timeframe. He provides reports which give a clear, concise medico-legal 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.
