Specialised knowledge or expertise

In our most complex cases we may need input from someone with technical expertise and experience. Particularly where the concerns took place in a specialised setting or involve very technical issues we may need help to determine exactly what happened, what should have happened and how serious it was. In most cases the best source of this specialised knowledge and expertise will be from a suitably qualified person at a local level. If there is no local person who can assist us we will consider whether an independent expert can provide us with necessary evidence to assist our decision makers.
