I have to attend court

coroner
  1. Contact us on 0800 716 646, ideally before you submit your witness statement, or coroner's or procurator fiscal's report if it's an inquest/fatal accident inquiry (FAI).
  2. Find out as much as you can about the case itself. Are you a witness in a case involving other individuals, or yourself, or are you giving evidence to the coroner/procurator fiscal at an inquest/FAI?
  3. Get a copy of your report (if you have submitted one), the relevant clinical records, and any correspondence relating to the hearing and send this to us - without patient identifiers, unless we ask for them.
  4. Read our guide to coroners' inquiries/FAIs or watch our videos on coroners' inquests or acting as a professional or expert witness for more information.
