Medico Legal

What is a Medico-Legal report?

Here at Absolute Footcare our practitioners are able to produce Medico-Legal reports on request from the court. We have experience in all of the following areas of podiatry;

  • Podopaediatrics
  • Diabetes
  • Podiatric surgery
  • Musculoskeletal podiatry
  • Trauma

What does a Medico-Legal report contain?

When requested, a Medico-Legal report will be put together by one of our fully qualified Podiatrists and will contain the following pieces of information;

  • What current podiatry treatment is required and what will be required in the future
  • The estimated cost of treatment
  • The patients previous, present and future functional ability
  • What potential the patient has for improvement

To ensure they are up-to-date with all the latest protocols, research and methods of treatment all our report writing practitioners are registered with the Health Care Professions Council and are members of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
