Dear Ministry of Justice,

I understand that deaths have to be reported to the coroner (inter alia)

if the person died unexpectedly during surgery or medical treatment or while under anaesthetic, or if they died unexpectedly after surgery or treatment and apparently as a result of it.

Yours faithfully,

Virginia Crawford
