Happy Christmas

When Albert Einstein eventually unveiled his General Theory of Relativity he concluded that gravity was not a force within its own right existing ‘out there’ but rather a product of massive objects bending the fabric of space and time. This bending intensifies the...


A few new faces at MRC

The summer is now nothing more than a distant memory as we prepare to hunker down and hibernate for winter. At MRC, the summer is usually one of our busier periods and we certainly weren’t disappointed this time. We have a sneaking suspicion that solicitors try to...


What’s going on at MRC?

There are a few things going on here at MRC that we would like to keep you updated on. We feel that it’s important to keep clients abreast of any substantial developments within the business. Firstly, Sharon, our Operations Manager who has been with us for nearly 2...

Huffing, puffin’ and brake fluid

Last weekend saw the advent of the annual ‘Heels-on-Wheels’ cycle trip. This year we were going to traverse the beautiful undulating hills of Anglesey. Now depending on what kind of person you are, 110 miles over two days is either met with a gasp or an eye roll. For...


Happy 9th Birthday to MRC!

When I first started MRC in my back bedroom you could count the number of other firms who provided the same service on essentially one hand. Now nine years later that number has exploded to three or even four hands and we’ll never know if Starbucks is eyeing up the...


SCIL Conference 2017

On the first of this month MRC had the pleasure of exhibiting for the second time at the SCIL conference in Birmingham. SCIL was formed to “promote best practice in the conduct of clinical negligence claims, to influence public policy for the benefit of its members...


AvMA Law Practice & Procedure Talk 2017

Last week I was delighted to give a talk at the AvMA Practice & Procedure Course in Birmingham. Like a lot of people, public speaking has never been one of my favourite jobs so I was pleasantly surprised to be invited back for a second time! This essential course...


2016 Round Up

2016 has seen MRC take on its fair share of ups and downs, looking back across the whole year we can see that the trajectory of the business has been decisively positive. We are particularly proud of making it through this year (mostly!) unscathed as one of our aims...


Lalley Toy Appeal

I was recently invited to a ‘Stella & Dot’ jewellery party with accompanying toy donation and raffle at MLP Solicitors in Altrincham. Whilst not always my thing, the party was actually very enjoyable and I met a lot of new and interesting people. Amongst those was...


Fresh faces at MRC

As the pace of work has remained optimistically relentless throughout the year we took the decision to expand our team with some fresh faces. Our Sorting Department saw two new additions with Mary and Rhys joining the team. The sheer volume of medical records that...


We asked and you told us…

Having recently exhibited at both the SCIL and AvMA Clinical Negligence Conferences, we took the somewhat unusual step at these events of listening to the delegates to find out what their concerns were when dealing with medical records and the implications of Fixed...

Another dentist joins the team

Heels-on-Wheels complete the challenge!

As this photograph shows, we all arrived safely in Abersoch in glorious sunshine after completing our 218 km cycle ride from where we live in Hale through beautiful Cheshire & Snowdonia in aid of SIA. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all...


SIA Cycle Ride to Abersoch

The week has finally arrived and plans have changed, I was originally going to be setting off this Friday with 11 friends to cycle from where we live in Hale, Cheshire (think Cheshire Plains) through beautiful (but hilly!) Snowdonia to Abersoch. A total of 140 miles...


MRC at SCIL 2016

After attending the SCIL conference in 2015 as a delegate, I thought this year would be a great opportunity for MRC to exhibit.  I wanted to share the exciting developments we have made in our services, but perhaps more importantly I wanted to find out what really...
