Clinical forensic medicine

We examine and treat victims and alleged perpetrators in criminal investigations.

Our scope includes:

  • collecting and interpreting medical evidence
  • documenting and interpreting injuries
  • providing toxicological advice to the Coroner
  • providing support for health-care related deaths.

We attend crime and death scenes to provide medical advice and provide expert clinical and medico-legal opinions in court relating to:

  • fitness to appear or to be interviewed
  • traffic medicine
  • clinical effects and toxicology of alcohol and drugs.

Our medical staff and General Practitioner Government Medical Officers (GP-GMOs) can be used on a fee-for-service arrangement for the Queensland Police Service and the Department of Justice and Attorney-General.
