We have been asked to read you the following so that you are fully informed.
"It can take some time to process and complete a death certificate following a death. A death certificate is a legal document and can only be completed by a doctor who has met the deceased or in discussion with a coroner. Not all doctors work full-time and sometimes the necessary doctor is not immediately available. If the certificate needs to be discussed with the coroner this process can sometimes take a few days. The surgery will ensure your death certificate is available as soon as possible but it is important that you are aware that is may take up to 5 working days. We will inform you when the certificate is ready for completion."
