19. Prevention of Further Deaths

 

If a coroner has reported the risk of further deaths to an organisation (Section 17), the organisation must respond to the coroner in writing within 56 days outlining what action, if any, is being taken - or, if no action is planned, an explanation as to why.

 

Coroners will be required to share the reports and responses with interested persons to the inquest, including family members, and with the Lord Chancellor.

 

Coroners and the Lord Chancellor will have the authority to share reports and responses with any others who might find them useful or of interest.
