This article forms part of our ‘Paperwork’ series for 2011, providing information about a range of paperwork that general practitioners complete regularly. The aim of the series is to provide information on the purpose of the paperwork, and hints on how to complete it accurately. This will allow the GP to be more efficient and the patient to have an accurately completed piece of paperwork for the purpose required.

Legal medicine often requires the provision of a report by the general practitioner. This may be either as the treating doctor or as the expert witness providing peer evaluation of a colleague, or to assess professional standards and/or delivery of health services. This article reviews the process and obligations attached to the provision of such a report.
