Forensic Healthcare Services


Forensic Healthcare Services Ltd (FHC) was established in 1999 by a group of doctors experienced in law, medicine and science to provide training, consultancy and expert witnesses within the justice setting. For more than fifteen years, FHC has been one of the leading providers of medical and other experts in all areas of the law. We take instruction from a wide range of solicitors and barristers for cases including criminal, personal injury, child care/family, motoring, criminal negligence and civil across the UK and internationally. We have particular expertise and skills in complex, multi-faceted cases requiring a range of experts.


We now have had experts providing reports for, and giving evidence in, 300 specialities including scientific, technical and many other specialisations. All appointed FHC experts understand their limitations of liability and can prove evidence of professional indemnity cover. They take guidance from their professional bodies and fully accept their duties and obligations as an expert.


FHC have a highly experienced administrative team who manage the medico-legal cases using a bespoke Proclaim Case Management system. The system is currently being developed so that FHC customers can directly access the status of their cases.


As part of our ISO 9001 accreditation, expeditious and quality customer service is central to our business and we are often contacted by APIL members to advise on experts and quote for these high value and complex litigation cases.
