Guidance on paediatricians as expert witnesses in the family courts

Guidance on paediatricians as expert witnesses in the family courts
The Family Justice Council and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have produced guidance in relation to paediatricians being instructed as expert witnesses in proceedings in the family courts. The guidance is a companion document to the generic expert witness standards set out in Part 25 of the Family Procedure Rules 2010 (FPR 2010).

The guidance provides information regarding the use of paediatricians as expert witnesses and directs the reader to discipline specific information in relation to regulation, codes of conduct, competencies, supervision and quality of service.

The full guidance can be found here.
