Number of Post Mortems and View and Grant examination (R015135)

Thank you for your email dated 5 February where you requested clarification on the following information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA):
  • number of deaths reported
  • total number of post mortem examinations carried out
  • of which, number of view and grant examinations

    Firstly, I apologise for misinterpreting your original request dated 10 January.

    In the previous Annex A, the Post Mortems instructed is the number of full Post Mortems examinations conducted and the number View and Grant examinations. I omitted the full total of Post Mortems, which would be adding both the Post Mortems and View and Grant figures together. I now attach a new Annex A which lists the Total number of death reports received, the number of full Post Mortem examinations, the number of View and Grant examinations, and then the total of number of Post Mortems including the View and Grant that was omitted.
