Scottish Government Committee on Infant Cremation First Annual Report

January 26, 2016   //   No Comments

The Scottish Government’s Committee on Infant Cremation has released its first annual report.  The document highlights the actions completed along Lord Bonomy’s recommendations and looks forward to the next year.  The next phase for the National Committee is likely to involve the development of tailored online training available to all professionals involved in infant cremations, courtesy of the Training and Communication Sub-Group and, more directly, via NHS Education Scotland. It will also involve monitoring the progress of the relevant provisions and sections of the Burial and Cremation (Scotland) Bill, through the Forms and Record-Keeping Sub-Group.

The report may be read on the Scottish Government’s website here.
