Statement May 4 2018 - withdrawal of fees for Coroner's Medical Reports

At Devon LMC we have received a number of enquiries about the withdrawal of fees for Coroner’s Medical reports. The Coroner’s office is acting within the regulations, but we are very disappointed that the LMC was not involved in this decision. Dr Mark Sanford-Wood is due to meet soon with the Chief Coroner on behalf of the BMA and this item will be prioritised for discussion.
