The whole truth: responsibilities when providing evidence

The whole truth: responsibilities when providing evidence

As a benefit to members, medico-legal expertise is available 24/7 in emergencies through our Medico-legal Advisory Service telephone advice line. One of the most common types of calls we receive is about how to respond to requests for information for use in legal proceedings or for a medico-legal purpose. Many doctors are uncertain about how to respond to these requests. As this handbook will make clear, there are different obligations and requirements for different types of medico-legal information requests.
