Post Mortem Medical Examination

It is almost always the case that a Coroner who opens an Inquest will require a post-mortem examination.

The main exception is when the deceased was suffering from a well-diagnosed and advanced terminal condition.

In most cases a post mortem will help establish the cause of death. This could be relevant to any compensation claim.

It may be possible to obtain a post-mortem report at private expense if the Coroner has not already done so.
