The MedCo Portal was introduced as part of the implementation of phase 2 of the Government’s whiplash reform programme. One of the programme's objectives was to enhance the independence of medical reporting in respect of whiplash claims and increase confidence in the reports provided.
This paper sets out a Call for Evidence relating to the operation of the MedCo Portal. The purpose of the paper is to set out the issues on which the Government is seeking evidence from stakeholders. Guide questions are provided to assist stakeholders in identifying evidence relevant to those parts of the system that are under review. It would assist the analysis of the evidence provided if respondents could follow the guide questions wherever possible.
