Dr. finella Brito-Babapulle

Dear Solicitors Regulation Authority,
I emailed Ms Katherine Sheldrick at Hempsons solicitors for the following information which I have not received under the FOI act

I have asked twice for this information. I have not received it yet
How are expert witnesses sourced by solicitors to appear as experts before the General Medical Council or in other cases of medical negligence
Is there a list of expert witnesses somewhere.
Do people pay and get their names on a website and is this all it takes to say you are an expert?
Do solicitors choose these people to appear because they are cheap?

Yours faithfully,
Dr Finella Brito-Babapulle
