Forrest Medico-Legal Services is a registered, not for profit, community interest company.  We are a co-operative of experienced doctors specialising in timely, evidence-based medico-legal reports in cases of alleged human rights abuses.

We take pains to comply with international and UK standards for medico-legal documentation, operating on a paperless basis and at considerable speed.  This has major advantages for instructing solicitors, for their clients and for us.  Take a look at how we work.

We are also sometimes available to visit immigration detention centres and prisons, to give oral evidence in court and, in appropriate cases, to provide preliminary opinions on photographs and documentary evidence of torture.  If you are looking to commission our services please explore how to make best use of us.                                                                                 If you would like to request a medico-legal report, please visit our contact page.


We take data security very seriously; please ensure you read our privacy policy if you are considering contacting Forrest.
