Please sign this Prime Minister's petition to try and change a system that allows a lottery of best guessing/omission on death certificates.
It's easy to sign up - just go to:
http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/Dcertification/

At the moment the doc puts down what he thinks someone probably died of and this stays on the death certificate in the cause of death box even if they find out it's wrong :shock: What they do is add a footnote out of the box to say what the actual cause was.

If you needed to know if you had inherited a disease and looked back over death certificates you have no idea if they are right or not :shock: Also it allows cock ups to be covered up and glossed over.

This petition is to get the law changed so a new certificate is issued, one with the truth on it.

signed, so sad to say I have had two experiences of this, it also causes more grief than is necessary.
