Who has shaped the review?

This independent review has been shaped by a team of ten experts from a range of backgrounds, who formed the working group. This included individuals from the medical profession, patients, the legal system and employers. The working group were also supported by a CPS Advisor on the prosecution process.

The law in Scotland relating to culpable homicide (CH) is different from the law on GNM which applies in the rest of the UK. A separate Scotland task and finish group was therefore set up to advise the main working group on the issues as they applied in the Scottish legal and healthcare context.
