Coroner’s Reports

It is widely recognised that many of the functions carried out by coroners require the exercise of medical judgement. Members of Chambers are able to assist coroners by providing independent expert coroner’s reports into the circumstances surrounding a death, so as to highlight the issues and help the coroner decide whether an investigation is warranted.¬†We can provide a general overview or a specific medical opinion.

Members are willing to attend court to assist the coroner directly or give evidence within their field. This can be especially useful in meeting the needs and expectations of bereaved relatives, helping them understand the cause of death and answering their questions.

We have sufficient geographical coverage to allow a relevant expert outside the area in question to give an opinion, so as to avoid any imputation of local bias.
