3. The Steps That You Will Need To Take
Obtaining the Medical Certificate of the Cause of Death
If your loved one has died while in the care of any of the following; a residential care home, nursing home or hospice facility, the duty doctor will issue the next of kin with the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death as soon as possible.

If your loved one has died in a local community hospital or the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, the friendly staff will be happy to inform you of how and when you can have the opportunity to contact the Patient Affairs or Bereavement Officer. From here, you will be given instructions on how you can obtain the Medical Certificate.

It is always the responsibility of the General Practitioner, or in some instances the 'duty' doctor to issue a medical certificate if your loved one passes while in their own home.

Remember: Read carefully both sides of the detachable slip which is found on the Medical Certificate entitled 'Notice to the Informant'.
