Let's say your relative is suffering from dementia and you have already gotten the doctor to prepare the Medical Report even before you went to see Lam & Co. (that is, before we are able to provide any guidance).
Can the Court reject the Medical Report?
The short and sharp answer is:
- Yes, if certain requirements are not satisfied.
- handwritten reports; or
- Medical Reports that are not in the prescribed form.
In order to avoid this, Lam & Co. will advise its client not to get the Medical Report prepared in advance. Instead, the client should come and see us as early as possible and we will write to the hospital (chosen by the client). We will enclose a copy of the correct form to use and also inform the hospital of the do's and don't's in order to minimize the chances of rejection or the need for additional Medical Reports.
