Coroner's GP Referal Form

H.M. Coroner’s Service for Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin wishes to promote the electronic reporting of deaths by GPs to the Coroner’s Office. A similar system has been working with Medical Practitioners from Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust for some time. The coroner believes that this will be mutually beneficial  to his office and busy GPs as it saves time by allowing the GP to complete the task promptly and reduces delays caused by not always being able to access the Coroner’s Office by telephone. A copy of the GP form is available here. It also contains the email address to which it should be returned.
