On 13 January 2015, the Department of Health opened a consultation to seek views on the ‘release of a dead body from hospital’ good practice form. The Department of Health has developed this form to help hospitals have a more consistent, quality-controlled, and timely process to release bodies. The HTA will respond to the consultation in due course, and is encouraging those with an interest in this area to respond too.
