New registration office opens at King's Mill
King's Mill Hospital has opened an office for people to register deaths. Opening today, it is the first hospital-based registration office in the county outside Nottingham.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays it opens from 9am to 4.30pm, and bookings to register a death or stillbirth will be made by the hospital's bereavement centre.
Next of kin will be able to collect the medical certificate from the office and register the death at the same time.
Chaplain Edith Dawson welcomes the opening of the office: "Today is an important day in the ongoing development of bereavement services offered by the Trust.
"The death of a family member or friend is always difficult. We hope that by working together with the registrars we will offer a more sensitive service and enable the legal processes to run smoothly."

New Medical Director appointed
24 February 2014
Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has announced the appointment of a substantive Executive Medical Director.
Dr Andy Haynes, who has been working at the Trust on an interim basis since October 2013, will begin his substantive role in the near future.
Dr Haynes joined Sherwood Forest Hospitals from Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) where he was a senior consultant for 20 years – eventually becoming the lead for cancer services at the Trust.
In his role at NUH Dr Haynes delivered a nationally recognised blood cancer service and was part of the team responsible for the iconic Maggie’s Centre – a service that provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer. He was also a key member of the team that delivered a number of large scale service improvements.
Paul O’Connor, Chief Executive of Sherwood Forest Hospitals, said: “I am delighted to welcome Dr Andy Haynes as our new Executive Medical Director on a substantive basis.
“During his time as interim Medical Director Dr Haynes has made a significant contribution to the Trust, including overseeing a reduction in mortality rates and implementing recommendations from the Keogh Review.”
Dr Haynes will be a key member of the Board of Directors and will be the professional lead for all doctors in the Trust. He said: “It is an exciting opportunity to join Sherwood Forest Hospitals at this time.
“During my time as interim Medical Director we have demonstrated the significant progress made by hard work from dedicated staff. I will bring all of my experience and energy to help continue the journey and create excellent services across the local healthcare community.”
