Expert Witness Podiatrist for Bush & Co

I graduated from Plymouth University in 2015 and began working as a podiatrist within a domiciliary based role. I have always had an interest in crime and so decided to embark on the MSC Forensic Podiatry at the University of Huddersfield. I graduated in 2019 and began exploring my options for putting my newfound knowledge into practice. For the last few years, I have been working as an expert witness for Bush & Co, providing a podiatric opinion on various medico-legal cases.

The role of an Expert Witness Podiatrist

As podiatrists we are experts in all things foot health related. This knowledge places us in a great position to be able to comment on medico legal cases where the foot has been compromised in some way. From examining patient notes to meeting with claimants/defendants and even appearing in court, the role of an expert witness podiatrist is varied and extremely interesting.
