Medical examiners

A national network of medical examiners was recommended by the Shipman, Mid-Staffordshire and Morecambe Bay public inquiries and the College has long campaigned for their implementation. In March 2016 the Secretary of State announced a consultation for their introduction from April 2018.

The College has published guidance to help respondants and a pamphlet Medical examiners, explaining background to the policy.
