1) Mike Overbeke (Head of Public Protection) introduced the report regarding the provision of the autopsy service using a CT scanner. The use of digital body image scanning would decrease the use of invasive post-mortems and make the process quicker and more efficient and reduce reliance on NHS PM provision, delivering significant savings. The approach is supported by the Senior Coroner and the wider Service.
2) Mr Hill said that the digital autopsies would create revenue savings and operational resilience moving forward.
