Understanding your role

18. You must understand and follow the law and codes of practice that affect your role as an expert witness. You should consider undertaking training for the role, where available (for example, from your medical defence body or your employer’s legal department). In particular, you should make sure you understand:

a. how to write a report that follows the procedures set out by the courts

b. how to give oral evidence.

19. If you have expertise and experience in acting as an expert witness, you should be willing to share your knowledge with colleagues who might be called to give evidence in court, to help build their confidence and willingness to give evidence in the future.
