Dear Greater Glasgow NHS Board,

I would like to request the following information which I have also requested from the Procurator Fiscals but feel the second request would be better addressed to yourselves.

1. The current timescale/turnaround times for fiscal-ordered post-mortems being conducted in the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow from the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in Scotland on 1 March 2020 until 19 July 2020.

2. The storage capacities for the deceased in Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and the current figures as of 19 July 2020 for the number of deceased currently in QEUH.

Yours faithfully,

Anna Jackson
