Now that the Greater Manchester Enabling Safe Certification of Death in the Community service is being stood down, we take the opportunity to talk through the new legislation (from the Coronavirus Act 2020) and how this applies in practice.
Dr Aamna Khan (GP and Clinical Lead for the Enabling Safe Certification of Death in the community service) and Dr Viren Mehta (GP partner, clinical director of his PCN and clinical director for Stockport CCG) take us through this important subject.
