Regulation of the Post Mortem Sector 2014 - 16: What we have learned

November 2016

This report is aimed particularly at Designated Individuals (DI), Persons Designated (PD), and any staff working under their direction in the conduct of licensed activities: predominantly pathologists and anatomical pathology technologists. The contextual sector information and the learning gained from the investigation of HTARIs will provide a useful information resource and may help them mitigate the risks associated with mortuary practice.
 
It may also be of use to other professional groups not subject to HTA regulation but involved in the provision of PM services, for example: coroners, their officers, funeral directors and bereavement services.
