When determining whether it is appropriate to accept a referral for a medicolegal examination, each matter should be considered on a case-by-case basis. The examiner should also consider the following:
- the purpose of the assessment
- the injured person’s unique circumstances
- advice from the Federal and NSW Government, including what restrictions may be in place at that time
- the appropriate method, or combination of methods, for the assessment.
