Current Practice

Mr Stone has been engaged in medico-legal practice for ten years and has a special interest in clinical negligence work.

Mr Stone receives around 100 new instructions per year from a variety of sources including independent solicitors, secondary care NHS Trusts and the NHS Litigation Authority.  Appointments are usually available for clients requiring a condition and prognosis report in Exeter, London or Cardiff within two weeks of instruction. A completed report is returned within a further two weeks, although a faster turnaround time can be accommodated where necessary. Clinical negligence (breach and liability) reports are completed within a similar time frame. Mr Stone is also happy to provide a screening report prior to engagement as a Part 35 Expert.
