My approach to treating patients

I focus particularly on hip and knee surgery including minimally invasive and computer assisted joint replacement and arthroscopic (keyhole)hip and knee surgery.

I graduated from The University of Leeds and completed a rigorous postgraduate training including overseas training in the United States giving me a broad experience in general orthopaedics and trauma care.

I strongly believe continuing education is the key to providing excellent, ongoing patient care. I regularly attend national and international academic meetings and conferences to further enhance my surgical skills and clinical knowledge.

I have a strong commitment to research and with my research fellow participate in a number of ongoing research projects with other doctors and scientists.

I also believe in a professional approach to training tomorrow’s doctors and am actively involved in teaching medical students and trainee surgeons. I also participate in national training programmes.

As an experienced doctor I have more than 15 years of specialisation in orthopaedics. I believe the most important aspects of providing quality care are listening to the needs of patients, communication; patient education; prevention of musculoskeletal injuries; presenting treatment options to the patient; establishing a relationship with my patients/involving patients in treatment plan; etc.)

My practice specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal problems including arthritis. My practice includes hip and knee replacement as well as general orthopaedics. I am an active trauma surgeon.

I believe in meeting patients’ individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques–surgery is just one treatment option. I aim to combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide my patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.

I work to develop a partnership with my patients. This begins with listening through dialogue, with my patients I can help them to understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients always help to guide and direct the diagnostic and treatment activities.

I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. I want my patients to understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I want to present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I also believe in being frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I will explain that avenue in depth. Lastly questions are always welcomed and encouraged at every stage.

Medico-legal Information

Preliminary Advice Regarding Medico-legal Reports 

I provide approximately 35-50 Clinical Negligence reports per year. 

1. Within what time scale could you complete the report? 

Within 2-3 weeks of receipt of the bundle or review of the Claimant if an examination is required. 

2. What is your appointment availability?
Appointments are available within 3-4 weeks of receipt of notes & agreement of Terms & Conditions.

2a. Covid-19 Appointments : If appropriate a video consultation after submission of PROM assessments by the claimant may be undertaken. 

3. What is your hourly rate?

£115.20 + VAT 

4. What are your Court fees?

Separate terms and conditions will be provided if required. Daily fee is currently £1800 with a scaled cancellation schedule plus travel (time, business class air, 1st class rail).

I undertake Liability & Causation reports, Screening Reports & Condition & Prognosis Reports 

A Condition & Prognosis report is £465 – £691.20 (+ VAT).
Advisory/Screening reports will attract a fee between £259.20 – £691.20 (+ VAT).
Liability/Causation reports will usually attract a between £900 – £2016 (+ VAT). 

Upon receipt of a specific letter of instruction I always give a fixed quote for the report based upon the volume and type of records & the complexity of the case. I am aware of the rules relating to Expert evidence as set out in Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules. 

Unless otherwise agreed settlement of fees is due at 6 weeks from receipt of the report by the instructing party. 

Advice regarding the provision of medical records and images:- 

Indexed & paginated photocopies of original paper medical records
and unencrypted DICOM medical images can be reviewed in the shortest time by the Expert. 

lf you choose to send electronic records please give careful consideration to the formatting and delivery of these records. Where hard copy original medical records are provided in electronic format the time required to download, decrypt and review these will form part of the billable activity in relation to the preparation of the report. 

Encrypted, un-indexed pdf, tiff files and others will necessarily require more time to review or it may not be possible to review them in full within the funding constraints requested. Accessing records from 3rd party on line record storage providers will also form part of billable activity. 

Also note that the multiplicity of available DICOM medical imaging packages which are often also encrypted and bundled with bespoke viewing programmes, many of which are compatible only with older operating systems (Windows XP) and which prevent exportation into the customary DICOM viewer with which the Expert is most familiar impose similar time and billing consequences. 

These factors will bear particularly upon cost limited or “screening” reports.

I can accept records by secure electronic transfer subject to the advice above. All physical records should be sent to me at: 

The Yorkshire Clinic Bradford Road 

Bingley
BD161TW 

In negligence cases a Condition & Prognosis report would only be required if the liability & causation report is supportive. Standard terms & conditions will also be sent for agreement before this report can be prepared. 

For Negligence reports, upon agreement of Terms, reports are issued within 2-3 weeks of receipt of the bundle. Condition & Prognosis appointments (if required) are usually available within 3-6 weeks of receipt of all of the relevant medical records & images, reports are issued within 2-3 weeks of the examination. I consult in Bradford, Leeds & (by arrangement) in London.
