Junior doctors working in Scotland can be called to court to give evidence as a professional witness; this usually relates to a patient treated for injuries in the Accident and Emergency or Surgical Departments. Doctors do not always receive formal instruction as professional witnesses, and hence a court appearance can be a daunting experience. This review aims to familiarise doctors working in Scotland with the Scottish Criminal Courts, de-mystifies some legal terminologies, and provides a practical guide to giving evidence in court as a professional witness.
