To the Editor: Consensus exists that the provision of medical advice must be based on the correct interpretation of the evidence base. It is logical to assume that consideration should also apply to the provision of medical opinion in cases of medical litigation. The recent article on Sharp v Port Kembla RSL Club1 raises concerns which require wider debate.
