"Bad advice and patient leaflets"

Following a death in A&E the nursing team and others at this hospital advised my family the body could only be released to a Funeral Director employed by the family. This is not required. Legally the body can be realised to the family who may wish to hold a DIY burial or cremation. It is disgusting the hospital is providing bad advice and working closely with local funeral directors to ensure relatives are sucked in to pay for unnecessary services.
