Services

Medico-Legal North West Chambers provides timely and high quality medico-legal services throughout the region, and further afield.

Areas Covered

Our select team of independent forensic psychiatrists and general adult psychiatrists and senior clinical psychologists has grown significantly. We all have extensive knowledge of mental health services and resources as well as specific expertise in criminal, family, mental health and mental capacity legislation.

We have worked in different secure hospitals and prisons throughout the United Kingdom, enabling us to provide extensive local knowledge and good lines of communication with services.

We will respond to queries within 3 hours of receipt and the report will be allocated to the most appropriate professional, considering gender and specific expertise required.

We know that at times reports are required within short time frames, and can facilitate this.

We welcome direct contact from referrers at any point in the process to expedite a fast and accurate service. You can speak to the doctor preparing your report at any time.

We provide a fully confidential and secure service and reports will be encrypted at source.

Informal Advice

We are happy to talk to you about whether an expert report might be helpful in your case, and if so what type of report this might be. Sometimes there can be confusion over the differences between what a psychology and psychiatry report offers, and we can talk you through this. At times you may simply want guidance on mental health issues or services without needing to instruct a formal report, and we are happy to be contacted for this.
