An interview with the inspectors
The CMA recently gave the UK, Welsh and Northern Irish Governments 90 days to consider its recommendation to establish a registration and inspection regime for funeral directors.
Meanwhile in Scotland, there are already two Inspectors of Funeral Directors in post, giving an indication of how such a regime can work. So for the latest Partnership Podcast, Malcolm spoke to both inspectors to get a view of the work they have done so far, and its potential impact across the whole of the UK.
Robert Swanson, Senior Inspector of Burial, Cremation and Funeral Directors, and Professor Gordon Findlater, Inspector of Burial, Cremation and Funeral Directors, also outline their backgrounds, their engagement with funeral directors, and how the past year’s events have impacted their work.
