Dr Anton van Dellen has published an article on expert witness short reports together with Mr Hugh Whitfield, a consultant urologist, in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

At the outset of an alleged medical negligence case, it is common for medical expert witnesses to be asked to write a brief report, sometimes called a short report or a screening report. Such requests may come from solicitors acting for a claimant or for the defence. Doctors and the instructing solicitors need to be aware of the legal and ethical implications of providing such instructions. The medical expert must be aware that their duty to the court begins from the time of receipt of a letter from a solicitor requesting such a report.
