The Senior Coroner for Inner West London, Dr Fiona Wilcox, has made a report to prevent future deaths (a “PFD report”) in connection with her investigation into deaths following the Grenfell Tower fire.

Her report (here), issued on 19 September 2018, is a good illustration of the potential breadth of a coroner’s powers: the report focuses not on fire safety but on future health screening and support for those survivors and others who now face the physical and psychological consequences of their involvement in this tragedy.
