If you have a serious injury or illness, generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies. A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Before you go there, ask yourself, is it a real emergency?

At Lantern Health we recognise that death is a tragic time for everyone involved; especially those close to the deceased. We appreciate that this is an extremely difficult and stressful time. Here are some simple instructions on what to do if…
If Death Occurs At Home
- During surgery hours call us and a GP will visit to confirm that death has taken place.
- Out of surgery hours call 999 or alternativly if the death has been expected, ege with terminal care please call the out of hours GP service who will visit to confirm death.
- Contact a funeral director.
- Arrange to collect the doctor’s Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).
- Take this to the Registrar’s Office, (together with the deceased’s Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrar’s Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.
- 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).
If The Death Occurs In Hospital
- Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.
- Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 – 5 as above
Note for Cremation
Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
