The purpose of a limited legal aid certificate is to fund the gathering of evidence, not to pander to it. Specialist solicitors are well capable of conducting a forensic examination of an individual's medico-legal complaint and I will do so in this case without bowing to unsubstantiated claims by anyone, least of all those with a vested interest in cosmetic surgery. As a lawyer, I rely for medical advice on experts in the relevant field. I certainly would not seek the opinion of a plastic surgeon on a matter of paediatric disease or pathology.
