star this property answer text <p>There are no plans to extend the coroner’s remit in this way. By April 2019 the Government is planning to introduce a system of medical examiners in England who will review the certification of deaths not referred to the coroner. They will also report matters of a clinical governance nature which will support local learning and help to determine changes to practice and procedures.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Coroners are independent judicial office holders and, as such, it would not be appropriate for Ministers to interfere in their decisions.</p><p> </p><p>Following the judgment of the Administrative Court in R (Adath Yisroel Burial Society) v Senior Coroner for Inner North London (2018) EWHC 969 (Admin), the Chief Coroner issued guidance to coroners on handling urgent decisions, including those concerning faith issues. The Guidance is a practical guide to assist coroners in situations where:</p><ul><li>a bereaved family has made a request to the coroner for urgent consideration of the death of a loved one and/or early release of the body; or</li><li>the coroner or coroner’s officers otherwise become aware of features of a particular death which may justify treating it as especially urgent.</li></ul><p><br> The Guidance provides a summary of the guiding principles and is available at: <a href="https://www.judiciary.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/guidance-no-28-report-of-death-to-the-coroner-2010517.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.judiciary.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/guidance-no-28-report-of-death-to-the-coroner-2010517.pdf</a></p><p> </p>
