Medical Examiner Service

Who are Medical Examiners and Medical Examiner Officers?

Since 2019 senior NHS doctors have had the opportunity to receive specialist training and spend some of their time working as Medical Examiners at the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust. Alongside other specially trained staff, their job is to give independent advice into causes of deaths; except for deaths which have to be reviewed by a Coroner. The Medical Examiners ensure that all deaths are reviewed by someone who is independent and who was not involved in the patient’s care.
