How to instruct Mike Hayton

Mike Hayton has over 25 years of experience in preparing medical reports and has been a Consultant Orthopaedic Hand and Wrist surgeon at Wrightington Hospital for over 20 years.

His clinical practice for the last 20 years has been exclusively hand and wrist problems and therefore only prepares medical reports in these areas.

He reports on personal injuries and receives instructions from both Defendant and Claimant solicitors.

Mike still receives instructions though some agencies or directly to his practice.

Court Appearances

Court appearance is based on Mike's hourly rate of £440 +VAT per hour based on an 8 hour day.

Pre trial preparation fees are additional.

The fee for cancellation of an agreed Court date(s) tapers inside a 6 week notice and reflects the difficulty in rearranging short-notice private and NHS slots.
