When coroners make mistakes

The system  that allows coroners to be elected or appointed by an elected official has a long history.  It is a system brought to the colonies from Europe when doctors were often self-taught or trained under another physician.  The community doctor in colonial America was physician, surgeon and pharmacist.

Fast forward to 2012; April 9, 2012 article, Coroner’s care in  times of tragedy by Chris Gregory.  “Citizen coroner, Andrew Bradley was appointed coroner in 1989 after 10 years as a criminal and family law solicitor in Basingstoke“, according to the article in www.thisishampshire.net.

He said: “I’m not sure why they appointed me because I knew absolutely nothing about it. (referring to his new career as coroner) But from a personality point of view, they felt I was the right person for the job, and I hope they have not been mistaken.

The multitasking coroner also “sits at inquests” and if there are no “sudden deaths overnight”, he goes on to court where he will “preside over disability and social security tribunals”.

“By its nature, the role of the coroner is a solemn job” the coroner Bradley told Gregory. Then added, “the job involves death and that’s what I have to deal with.  There is no way you can make it palatable”.

Do you wonder what the solicitor Bradley thought the job of coroner would be, if not dealing with death?

Bradley’s closing comment is startling:

“Every single one is a deceased – it involves a family.  You give them all the information they want”.

And, as citizens and families of the “deceased” we have no right to challenge the authority of this appointed or elected coroner with documented facts certifying they may have made an incorrect “decision” called a cause of death.

More on this……
