About JS Wand Medico-Legal.
Mr Jon Wand B.Sc., M.B.B.S., F.R.C.S, has been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon since 1992, working for the NHS at Cheltenham General Hospital and Cirencester Hospital, as well as in private practice at Nuffield Health Cheltenham. JS Wand Medico-Legal was formed to administer the medico-legal aspects of his practice. He has gained extensive experience of general orthopaedics and trauma while working for Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust. He has a sub-speciality interest in upper limb trauma and surgery, and specifically in the area of the shoulder and elbow. He continues in clinical practice, both in the NHS and private sector.
Mr Wand began preparing medico-legal reports in 1985. He has attended various courses and updates within this area of interest. Presently he sees claimants in Cheltenham, Cirencester, Harley Street, London, Derby, Birmingham, Durham, Manchester and Portsmouth. Claimants in London and Manchester are usually seen on a Saturday. He has prepared in excess of 19,000 reports. He has experience of giving oral evidence in court, though since the Woolf reforms, less so in recent years. Most of the cases are prepared for personal injury claims, and about 3% medical negligence.
Mr Wand retired from surgical practice in April 2021 and now works exclusively as a medico-legal expert. Accordingly he ceased to be a Licenced Medical Practitioner with the GMC since December 14th 2021 and is now a Registered Medical Practitioner, since he no longer treats patients.
