Can I allow access to a deceased patient’s notes?

Comment

where is pulse getting it's opinions.? Dead person = not a GP patient. Records needed by insurance etc they apply to NHSE who will ask Capita who will make a mess of it. Report needed on deceased illnesses same as above. Your responsibility to the dead ends when you have done certificate and maybe crem form, although that will disappear with the new death scene examiners. BMA good but not perfect
