Medico-legal advice forms a large part of Health Legal’s work. We regularly answer queries from a broad range of health service staff on an even broader range of medico-legal issues.

Given our specialisation, we rarely receive a query that one of the team members has not considered before.

We strive to provide our clients with quick and accurate responses. We pride ourselves on our ability to anticipate and mitigate potential risks and issues for our clients before they arise.

Some of the medico-legal matters we have advised on in the past include:

  • Consent issues
  • Mental health
  • Guardianship matters
  • Medical negligence and duty of care breaches
  • Release of patient/resident information
  • Subpoenas and giving evidence in Court
