In the first in a two-part series looking at the work of the coroner, James Sira talks to Derek Winter about the role of the coroner, medical examiner, and the coroner’s inquest.
Derek is HM Senior Coroner for the City of Sunderland and was appointed as one of the two Deputy Chief Coroners of England and Wales in 2019. He has conducted a wide range of cases in the 15 years he has spent as a coroner and has modernised the Sunderland coroner service.
Most intensive care doctors will at some point in their career be required to provide a statement for or give evidence at a coroner’s inquest, and this can be a daunting experience.
