Covid-19 Policies and Guidelines

Verification of death is to confirm that someone who has died is actually dead. In the community we have become accustomed to this being done by nurses and doctors working in the community. In the current crisis with COVID-19, these staff may not be readily available. Here is guidance from Lincolnshire about what is required in law and sensible procedures. This is almost certainly going to be a difficult time for carers and family. Undertakers can also verify death.
