The ninth summary bulletin of coroners’ reports to prevent future deaths and responses under Rule 43 of the Coroners (Amendment) Rules 2008 (“Rule 43 Reports”) will be published on 4 June 2013.

The bulletin will give details of reports made by coroners to prevent future deaths, and responses received, during the period between 1 October 2012 and 31 March 2013.

It will include trends, reports with wider implications and annexes giving details of the number of reports issued by each coroner district, organisations who have not responded to the coroner and all reports received.
