Abstract

Provides guidance to NHS organisations on planning and designing comprehensive NHS mortuary and post-mortem facilities. It includes accommodation for: the receipt, temporary storage, viewing and removal of bodies, post-mortem examinations, visiting relatives/friends and teaching and research. This guidance may be used where the full facilities are not necessary, for example where a body store with viewing only is required. It may also be used when planning a joint NHS/public mortuary and post-mortem facility. The schedules of accommodation listed have adopted a modular approach to planning to enable project teams to “pick and mix” those facilities that are required.

Document History

When used in Scotland superseded by SHPN 16-01 'Mortuary and post mortem facilities: design and briefing guidance' (HFS, 2017).
