New Coroners Referral Form for East Riding and Hull

Publication date: November 2020

The Coroner’s Office in the East Riding and Hull is currently progressing plans to move to a new version of the case management system used.  The transition is due to take place later this month and the Go Live date for the new system is currently set as 24th November.

The new version of the software includes a web based version of the reporting form used when referring a death to the coroner.  The new form will be accessed through the same link as the current form and so there will be no need for doctors to familiarise themselves with an alternative URL.  A link to the form will also be made available on the coroner’s web page.

The new form will look and feel different to the current form, although the information to be completed will not significantly change.  There will be the ability to provide a lot more information on the new form, so the form will look a lot more in depth , however not all questions will be mandatory to complete. Mandatory questions will be highlighted in red.  

Hospital doctors and registrars will use the same form.  Questions will differ depending on the referrer’s role and so one of the first new questions is to confirm your role i.e. GP or Hospital Doctor.  The use of drop down lists, including one for causes of death will hopefully make the form more user friendly and easier to complete.

At the end of the form the doctor will have a clear view of the information provided and the ability to edit any section to make changes.  When submitting the referral a confirmation will be displayed at the top of the screen to confirm it has been successfully submitted along with the option to print or save a copy of the form.  This will replace the confirmation by email.

The Coroner’s office have stated that they appreciate that now is not an ideal time to make changes, however given problems with IT servers that concern the current system they cannot delay the change any longer and hope that this change will not cause any inconvenience at this difficult time for everyone.

The Coroners Officers are contactable on 01482 613009 for support and to discuss referrals. More guidance including screen shots of the new form can be downloaded on this guidance note
