Regency Medical doctors have prepared a range of immigration and detention related cases. We can prepare any medical reports and the adverse effect it may have on the removal from the UK on any physical and mental health condition. We can also prepare reports on the effects of removal from the UK on an individual and/or family members.
What is immigration medicals?
An Expert Witness Report (also known as a medico-legal or medico-legal) report, is a report which is written by a doctor or another health professional for legal proceedings. A medico-legal report is the written evidence of a medical or allied expert witness. Experts write medico-legal reports for actual or potential litigation.
Why is it needed?
In some cases, the need for an expert will be obvious and in others the value of such a report may be indeterminate. In the immigration setting, clients may be detained awaiting deportation, they may be undergoing a legal battle for immigration status, or they may have a known or unknown medical or mental health condition, all of which may require an assessment that needs to be expertly reported on. Foremost all of these situations naturally cause stress and anxiety leading to concerns with an individual’s mental health, even in the previously well patient. At Regency Medical, we are able to speak to you about the service that our panel may be able to provide; equally, we can advise when medico legal evidence may not be warranted. Whilst our experts are committed to adhering to medico legal report guidelines, their expertise and past experience will be invaluable to accessing the right report for your client in immigration proceedings. Proceeding without medical evidence may be detrimental to your case.
This list is not exhaustive and we are happy to discuss any case with you and only take on the case if deemed suitable for our expert team.
