We write to the Client to notify them of the appointment date, venue and the name of the examining Expert. The Client should be offered an appointment date within 10 days in the case of GP Instructions and 14 - 28 days for Consultant cases. On receipt of appointment dates, we will send notification to the Solicitor and contact the Client to confirm that they are aware of the appointment and are able to attend. Alpha Medicolegal will acquire medical records as per instructions. Under the Data Protection Act 1998, healthcare establishments have 40 days to comply with a request for the release of records. We pay for the discharge of records and on receipt, they are photocopied; a copy is kept on file and a second copy is forwarded to the Medical Expert. We have an excellent system of reminders on the database. If the appointment, medical records and reports are not received within set time limits, we will expedite the matter and keep the Solicitor informed of any delays. We would expect to receive the medical report from a GP within 1 – 3 weeks from the examination. In the case of Consultant reports, we would expect receipt within 2 – 4 weeks following the date of the examination. If the medical report is not received within these timescales, we regularly chase the Expert by telephone and in writing and notify the instructing Solicitor.
