Description

Norfolk County Council is looking to procure a toxicology analysis and reports service.
The Norfolk Coroner jurisdiction covers a population of 920,000 and has approximately 3000 reported deaths a year. Under the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 (the 2009 Act), the Coroners (Investigation) Regulations 2013 and the Coroners (Inquest Rules) 2013, the Coroner is required to establish the cause of a person’s death. If the cause of death is unknown, then the Coroner will instruct a pathologist to conduct an examination to establish the cause of death. As part of that examination the pathologist may request that samples taken during examination are submitted for toxicological analysis. Norfolk County Council is responsible for meeting all costs of the service and for arranging a toxicology service to support the needs of the Senior Coroner.
