NCISH will provide insight into the plight of the homeless community and changes which could be made to reduce the number of suicides within this community. The information contained within this study could enhance the recommendations made by Coroners within their Inquest conclusions.

Business Development Executive
iGene Post Mortem Imaging
iGene post mortem imaging will provide staff with an understanding of how this work has developed and is being utilised in various parts of the country. There has been a huge reduction in the number of pathologists available to carry out standard post mortems and therefore imperative that Coroners staff are aware of the alternative options for future planning.

‘Settld’ is a new initiative established to provide a parallel service to the ‘Tell Us Once’ service, which seeks to limit the burden placed upon the bereaved in having to contact multiple agencies to advise when a death has occurred. Knowledge of this service and confidence to signpost the bereaved has huge potential to limit this additional distress for families.
