Consultation on Coronial Investigations of Stillbirths

Launch date: 02 Apr 2019 10:03
Closing date: 28 May 2019 18:00
Source: Ministry of Justice

The Ministry of Justice and the Department of Health and Social Care have jointly prepared this consultation, which seeks views on proposals for introducing coronial investigations of stillbirth cases in England and Wales, as an important step towards delivering the Government’s commitment to reduce the rate of stillbirths.

In addition to introducing greater transparency to the way in which stillbirths are investigated, the Government’s proposals would ensure that bereaved parents are involved at all stages of the investigation, and that any learning that can be taken from such investigations is disseminated across the health system to help prevent future avoidable stillbirths.

They would like to hear and consider all points of view.

Please find the consultation document and associated documents here.

Please email feedback and comments by Tuesday 28th May 2019 via email to Carmel Bagness.
