Dr Jason Lester

Medico legal



I qualified at The United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s & St Thomas’s Hospital, London in 1993. I am a Member of The Royal College of Physicians (1997) and a Fellow of The Royal College of Radiologists (2001). I was appointed as a consultant clinical oncologist in 2003. My practice is based in South East Wales and I have clinics in The Royal Gwent Hospital Newport, Llandough Hospital Cardiff and Velindre Cancer Centre, Cardiff.

I have 13 years experience as a consultant clinical oncologist, and have been providing medicolegal reports in clinical negligence cases within my fields of expertise since 2008. My areas of expertise include the treatment of mesothelioma, lung cancer, urological cancers (prostate, bladder, kidney) and carcinoma unknown primary. I currently undertake about 30 cases per year. My ratio is split 50% Claimant and 50% Defendant.

The turn around time for reports is 14 days or less depending on the complexity of the report. I aim to provide timely, evidence-based unbiased reports within my areas of expertise that reflect current legal practice

Terms & Conditions and fees are available on request. I would encourage solicitors who are considering instruction to contact me in advance by email (legal@lester-oncology.org) or telephone to discuss the case. This is free of charge.
