The following PI & Clinical Negligence guidance note Produced in partnership with Ian Huckstepp of IRH Solicitors provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Brexit: As of exit day (11 pm on 31 January 2020) the UK is no longer an EU Member State. However, in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK has entered an implementation period, during which it continues to be subject to EU law including the General Data Protection Regulation, Regulation (EU) 2016/679. For further guidance on that period, its duration and the data protection laws that are anticipated to apply after the end of it, see Practice Note: Brexit—implications for data protection.
It is important that personal injury practitioners are fully aware of all potential medical issues relating to the claim. The medical records should be obtained so that the appointed medical expert can review all the available evidence in relation to the medical injury when preparing his or her medical report. The medical records will assist the expert to confirm the diagnosis of the injury sustained in the accident, detail the treatment received and any noted recovery. The medical expert will be able to take note and consider any relevant pre-accident medical history and the records will assist the expert in forming his or her opinion and prognosis when preparing the report.
The medical records consist of notes, letters, charts, x-rays, results of tests and correspondence regarding any treatment
