After being awarded the University of Cardiff/ Bond Solon Expert Witness Certificate in 2011, I have regularly compiled confidential psychiatric reports for Mental Health Review Tribunals and Managers’ Hearings for patients detained under the Mental Health Act. I have also acted as an Expert Witness for a range of civil and criminal matters.
I have compiled over 600 reports for Courts, First Tier Tribunals and Hospital Managers’ Hearings. This includes reports on mentally disordered offenders, as well as assessment of fitness to plead in criminal matters for County and Crown Courts.
I also regularly undertake mental capacity assessments for the Court of Protection and conduct assessments for clinical negligence, personal injury cases and Family Courts. I have a special interest in the mental health of asylum seekers and refugees, including victims of torture and human trafficking.
