FANY support North London and Westminster Coroners

The FANY (PRVC) is providing essential call handling, data management and administrative support to the North London and Westminster Coroners' offices as part of the COVID-19 response.

This builds on a long-term relationship for the Corps, who on occasion also provide a personal Aide de Camp to the Coroner in crisis situations.

Andrew Walker, North London Coroner, highlighted the work they have been doing, saying, “The team have offered invaluable admin support and help to members of staff at this pressured time.” He went on to say he would like “to pass his personal thanks to the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry volunteers who have been deployed to the Court. Once again, in a time of national crisis, the volunteers have worked as part of the Enquiries Team undertaking vital work to keep the Coroner's service going. It is at times like this that the true value of the work they undertake can be seen. Thank you again.”

At an event earlier this month, Professor Fiona Wilcox, Westminster Coroner, praised the FANY's support to her office in 2017. Commenting on the Corps, she said, “I just wanted to express my gratitude for the immense support given to the office ... [during 2017]. As always the FANY were invaluable, professional and appropriate."
