Role of the Medical Examiner

Role of the Medical Examiner

About this Lunch & Learn

This Lunch & Learn training resource can be used at a time and place to suit the practice, either for all staff or a group of newly employed staff. It is also ideal for using as part of the induction process.

This package looks at the new role of the Medical Examiner, which will become a statutory role on 9th September 2024.

“….it will be a legal requirement that medical examiners scrutinise all non-coronial deaths. This will help to deter criminal activity and poor practice, increase transparency and offer the bereaved an opportunity to raise concerns…….The introduction of medical examiners is part of a broader death certification, registration and coronial process. We are working closely across Government to ensure that from both a legislative and operational perspective we are supporting the professions involved so that they are prepared for the full introduction of the statutory system”

By the end of the training, all attending should be aware of what the role entails, why it is being brought in and what this will mean for the practice, including looking at a possible process in practice.

Certificates of attendance are provided as part of the package, and don’t forget to log your learning points & reflections as part of your CPD. CQC are particularly keen to see any evidence of your learning and how you apply it.

We welcome any feedback from you and your staff when you have run any of our Lunch and Learn training resources.

Please note: Paying via credit or debit card will permit immediate access. If paying via BACS, access will be granted once payment is received.
