Each of our CB Consultants have between 15-33 years of clinical experience, and every consultant has a strong reputation in a specialty field which they continue to provide clinical services within.  This gives our consultants strong credibility as expert witnesses.


All our reports are peer-reviewed and use the latest research evidence available to validate our clinical reasoning. 


We use relevant and reliable objective measures to quantify and objectify a person’s level of impairment that underpin our clinical recommendations for future care, equipment, accommodation, and professional services.


Our accurate and realistic future care recommendations are based on our unique report methodology which considers both subjective and objective evidence, the medical evidence provided, combined with our extensive clinical experience.


All assessments take place in the client's home environment so naturalist observations and task analysis of them performing their actual day to day tasks is undertaken to guarantee the accuracy of our future needs recommendations.


CB Consulting reports are fully costed based on an aggregate rate of credible care and service providers currently available.  We have experience in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (‘NDIS’) and using the current pricing for their services. 


We complete over 200 lifetime future needs opinions per year and have proven experience appearing as an Expert Witness in court matters and Conclaves. 


CB reports are highly sought after due to the detail contained within the report, the clinical reasoning and recommendations, and our extensive clinical credibility.
