Mr Stephen Kite is an expert in podiatric medical matters, he qualified in 1986 and began practising podiatric medicine in 1987. He is founder of award winning The Stephen Kite Practice, based in Dorset. He has over 25 years of private practice experience and expertise.
His expertise includes matters involving forensic analysis, podiatry expert witness, personal injury (including fully functional orthotics), medical negligence and malpractice and CCTV gait analysis.
Mr Kite has extensive experience in providing expert medico-legal opinion since 2007 involving the following expert cases – negligence, NHS whistleblowing, malpractice, personal injury, health professions council hearings and CCTV gait analysis in criminal cases (which involved identifying suspects from CCTV footage for the defence and the prosecution in criminal cases using gait analysis and is one of only a small group of Forensic Podiatrists worldwide who have used this method of identification or elimination of suspects.)
He has provided and reviewed evidence for the defence involving The Health and Care Professions Council, (the regulatory body for podiatrists in the UK), and he has acted as the expert to National Health Service Health Boards and been asked to assist in cases of NHS whistleblowing allegations. His expert evidence has been instrumental in some very complex medico-legal cases and he has been invited to talk about and demonstrate forensic podiatry methods on BBC1 TV.
