Having considered transplantation in Chapter 17, in ‘The Human Body and its Parts’ we examine how English law regulates the removal, retention and uses of human body parts and we consider how far (if at all) we own our own bodies. We examine the relevant provisions of the Human Tissue Act 2004 and the role of the Human Tissue Authority. In addition we address some aspects of the role of the coroner; a key actor in the regulation of the use of bodies and body parts post mortem.
