Bodies of deceased patients have been left to decompose inside NHS hospital mortuaries across England, inspectors have warned.

Inadequate storage facilities and a lack of freezer space left some dead bodies for too long in unsuitable temperatures, the report said.

Inspectors at the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) have warned that NHS trusts were not always adhering to the rules around keeping bodies.

Official HTA guidance says that bodies should be moved into frozen storage after 30 days in refrigerators, or before depending on the condition of the body.

But these rules were not always being followed due to a lack of resources, the HTA warned.

In one specific case, at Leeds General Infirmary last year, the HTA said: "The inspection team noted a body that had been in storage for 70 days that had not been placed into frozen storage despite being released by the coroner.

"This body showed signs of decomposition and had soiled shrouding.

"A second body had been in storage for 47 days, had also been the subject of a coroner's release notification and had not been placed into frozen storage and showed signs of decomposition."

Inspectors also found there was no cleaning schedule for the body store at the hospital.

At the Royal Blackburn Hospital in 2022, inspectors found major flows including "two bodies in an advanced state of decomposition" after they weren't moved into freezers soon enough.

At King's College Hospital in London, inspectors reported "critical" shortfalls in 2022 with mouldy and infested conditions for the body storage.

The report added: "At the time of the inspection there were several adult bodies which had been stored in excess of 30 days in the fridge units.

"Whilst these bodies were subject to regular condition checking, signs of deterioration were present.

"Bodies required movement to freezer storage to prevent further deterioration however the long-term storage unit was at capacity."

Also in 2022, inspectors at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford found inadequate storage space and "a number of bodies which had been held in refrigerated storage longer than the recommended 30 days which were beginning to show signs of deterioration".

Taxpayers billed £100m for NHS translators – could pay for 3,000 nurses

if the Patient has dementia , A family member goes along to Help out

these people attending Hospital have no one in their family that Speaks English ?

surely they should  Provide their own Translators ?
