I was invited by Andrew Berkley, North Staffs Coroner, to a tour of his office on the 13th February. Andrew very kindly provided a guided tour around their mortuary, during which he showed me the new CT scanner they had just received. This scanner will enable them to undertake autopsies without having to do evasive surgery, helping to save time and reducing the stress placed on loved ones of the deceased.
Andrew has only been in the role for 12 months but in that time, he has made a lasting impression, making numerous improvements to the department in terms of processes and investments. I would like to congratulate Andrew and his team on providing such a professional department and wish them all the best for the future.
