SHORT PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR THE COMPLETION OF MEDICAL CERTIFICATES OF CAUSE OF DEATH AND FORM CREMATION 4

The LMC has produced a short practical guide for the completion of medical certificates of cause of death and form cremation 4 for LLR GPs. This has been agreed by Professor C Mason (Senior Coroner, Leicester City and Leicestershire South) and Mr T H Kirkman (Senior Coroner, Leicestershire North and Rutland). We recommend that you keep a copy in your MCCD book for easy reference.

LLR LMC has been made aware that the Registrars currently have to return an increased number of MCCDs to GPs due to minor errors. The commonest issues are that either not all questions have been answered, or the photo emailed does not include the whole of both sides of the MCCDs. This creates more work for the Registrars and practices, and can delay the registration of death.
