Public Health England (PHE) has advised the public to ensure they have had two doses of MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccine after outbreaks of measles have been confirmed across England. Anyone who is not sure if they are fully vaccinated is being advised to check with their GP practice. There have been 440 laboratory confirmed measles cases in England between 1 January 2018 and 9 May 2018. The increase in measles circulation is mainly associated with travel to and from Europe where there are large ongoing measles outbreaks. 


 

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

    1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.
    2. Contact a funeral director.
    3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).
    4. Contact the local Registrar’s Office, the telephone number is normally left with the death certificate.
    5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).
