    Consulting

    An increasing number of litigation cases in the UK involve microbiology information that would benefit from expert critical review, interpretation or further development.  I am able to offer expert professional advice in all aspects of microbiology to assist in developing a robust body of evidence to support these cases.  With over 20 years experience in microbiological aspects of food, industrial and clinical microbiology, I have been offering professional microbiology advice to the legal sector for over five years primarily in cases of litigation, clinical negligence and malpractice.  For further information please contact me to discuss your requirements. I am also able to offer microbiological sampling and product testing services.
