“The Post Mortem Toxicology team are highly-trained skilled scientists and staff who will be a superb addition to SPA Forensic Services.

“This transfer was achieved thanks to extensive joint working between SPA Forensic Services, Police Scotland, COPFS, Scottish Government and the University of Glasgow and I want to thank everyone who helped in delivering this so successfully.”
