Transportation of Deceased for HM Coroner Avon Supplier Event
The jurisdiction of HM Coroner for Avon covers the geographical areas of four local authorities:
•Bristol City Council
•Bath and North East Somerset
Bristol City Council is the lead authority for the administrative support for HM Coroner. It is also the lead authority for operating the joint funded public mortuary facility co-located with the Coroner’s court at Flax Bourton, North Somerset.
The Avon coronial jurisdiction is one of the largest and busiest in the country. There are motorway networks, inner city areas, urban and rural areas to cover across this large area. The public mortuary deals with all deaths that are referred to the Coroner from the community in the area as well as most hospital deaths (except for RUH, Bath).
The current contract for transportation of the deceased from hospitals and the communities into the care of HM Coroner is due to expire at the end of March 2014. Bristol City Council is therefore looking to commission a new contract for this work from 1st April 2014.
