Wonder what will happen after the Shipman report.  Are we going to see a
realisation of the true value of a proper autopsy?

IN the UK, patients (relatives) only refuse, never request autopsies.

For those of you performing autopsies on patients who have died at other
institutions and the family requests an autopsy to be performed at your
institution, how much do you charge?  Thanks!
