Dear Stephanie Lewis,
Thank you for clarification request. I am slightly puzzled with the comment of not employing/contracting peer reviewers and senior peer reviewers, as this is clearly evident on correspondence in Claimants files.
As a layman, understanding such formalities can be tiresome and confusing. However, in reply to the best of my ability.
My understanding is you wish me to name individuals who I believe may currently be/have been in a role as providing peer review involvement. Whether their involvement pertains to reports back to the ACC for considerations related to claims and/or individuals assessing those reports of peer reviewers in the capacity of a Senior Peer Reviewer.
I do not have any specific names, this request is to obtain the names for periods mentioned earlier as well as other related information contained in the individual requests.
