Dear Colleagues

I refer to the email below from the CMO regarding Guidance to Medical Practitioners for Death Certification during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The guidance is that certifying doctors need to stop face-to-face contact and the handing over a paper MCCD/Form 11 (or the Certificate of Stillbirth/Form 6) to whoever usually collects the MCCD/Form 11 (usually the next of kin/informant) and that instead the signed copy of the printed/paper MCCD/Form 11 (or the Certificate of Stillbirth/Form 6) be scanned and e-mailed to the registration office where the next of kin/informant says they would like to register the death, as well as to the next of kin/informant themselves.

We have requested the Registrar General for Scotland to provide details of the registrars email addresses & postal addresses for North and South Lanarkshire Council’s and this is given below:
