Feedback, Concerns and Complaints

Do you have some feedback you'd like to share? There are a number of ways to resolve concerns about the service we deliver. You may contact the regional office (listed above) if you believe your concerns have not been addressed by those providing your service, and you have several options for pursuing timely resolution of problems or making a formal complaint.

If you have a concern about your service, it is best to raise it at the time and place the concern arises. This includes addressing concerns directly with a coroner or their supervisor. Most concerns addressed in this way are resolved quickly and can contribute to a positive experience for both you and those in the Coroners Service.
