WHIPLASH AT WESTMINSTER

Premex Group has been invited to the Houses of Parliament to present details of the medico legal process to MPs.

An influential All Party Parliamentary Group of MPs has requested Premex to join a delegation of professionals to present on the role of medical evidence in the personal injury process.

The APPG on Insurance and Financial Services is chaired by Jonathan Evans MP, and meets regularly to discuss policy and legislation in relation to those sectors.

With Jack Straw's Private Member's Bill (the Motor Insurance Regulation Bill) likely to receive further debate in the commons in January, the APPG was concerned that medical evidence should be considered carefully.

"There has been a great deal of negative publicity, not least from Jack Straw MP who criticised doctors in his 10 minute rule motion delivered back in September," explained Simon Margolis, CEO of Premex Group. "We were delighted to have been asked by Jonathan Evans MP to present to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Insurance and Financial Services so that we can explain how modern medico legal services provide speed, predictability, rehabilitation where appropriate and evidenced based support to the personal injury process, alongside technology that fits in perfectly with the spirit of the Jackson reforms."

The presentation has been earmarked for early 2012 and Premextra will provide a full round up in later editions.
