The new MedCo system has been introduced to the UK to control the sourcing of all initial medical reports in soft tissue injury claims brought under the RTA Pre-Action Protocol for Low Value Personal Injury Claims after the 6th of April 2015.
MedCo is currently registering experts, MRO’s and legal firms and providing links between them to accomodate a random selection process. This means that when a legal firm adds a case onto the MedCo system, they will be provided with a randomly generated list of MRO’s and Direct Experts that they are able to instruct.
UK Doctors Ltd and our Medico-Legal Expert – Dr Asef Zafar is MedCo registered as a direct expert and is currently receiving instructions from several solicitors through the MedCo system.
We have noticed an influx of solicitors and legal firms coming to us seeking a more personal approach for their MedCo cases.
Instead of instructing MedCo cases through a large faceless agency, why not add a more personal touch?
With a small team of dedicated bookings and administration secretaries, we are able to see most MedCo clients within 30 days of the instruction (depending on the client’s availability) and turn around most reports the same day.
UK Doctors Ltd and our MedCo registered Direct Expert – Dr Asef Zafar can be instructed whenever they appear on your MedCo generated list and have many years experience building high quality and proffessional standard Medico-Legal reports.
So if you have a MedCo case and we are listed in the results, please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to book them in.
