Section II: Object
Forensic and Non-Forensic Pathology and Mortuary Services Provision
The Lord Advocate, through the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) has responsibility in Scotland for the prosecution of crime and the investigation of sudden or suspicious deaths which require further investigation. As part of the process of investigating deaths, the Procurator Fiscal may, in order to establish the cause and mechanism of death, instruct post-mortem examinations at specified mortuaries.
The current contracts are due to expire in 2021 and as a result COPFS is looking to procure the provision of pathology and mortuary services required across the whole of Scotland (mainland and the Scottish islands).
