As well as seeing patients, we have experience with medico-legal cases and can provide expert consultation or evidence within this field. This covers paediatric as well as adult trauma cases.

As an orthopaedic consultant, Mr Crompton has experience with preparing clinical negligence and medical reports for a wide range of medico-legal cases. He can write medico-legal reports for all children’s and adult orthopaedic trauma. He can also produce expert witness or negligence reports for children’s orthopaedics, whether elective or trauma.
