Clinical Advisory Board

Clinical Advisory Board

As part of our real dedication to quality and excellence and driven by a directive to place a clinical governance culture at the heart of Speed Medical’s service delivery, we have invested heavily in the creation of our in-house Clinical Advisory Board.

Our Clinical Advisory Board (CAB) consists of a panel of eminent hand-picked clinical experts who are highly experienced in their field as well as the Medico-Legal world with years of hand-on experience. The CAB serves to promote clinical leadership and engagement in the continuous development and delivery of Speed Medical’s governance, clinical and quality strategies.

Delivering exceptional quality is the goal in everything we do. Our Clinical Advisory Board supports and benchmarks our extensive expert panel, ensuring they are continually delivering the outstanding level of service and client care outlined in our Clinical Governance Framework.

Our experts and staff are our most valuable resource – by investing in them, we’re investing in you.

"I fully appreciate your initiative to review my reports and give feedback following a complaint from the solicitor. It was an excellent and productive meeting yesterday with very good feedback from all of you. I will implement these changes with immediate effect to my methodology, examination, review of medical records and opinion."
