NSW Health Pathology’s forensic medicine service and the NSW Coroner’s Court are planning to modernise the delivery of services relating to coronial inquiry and forensic medicine including family support services.

Project Overview

Health Infrastructure NSW has the lead delivery role with NSW Health and NSW Justice working jointly in designing and building a new facility at Lidcombe NSW to facilitate a modern and collaborative working relationship between the NSW Coroner’s Court and NSW Health Pathology forensic medicine services. The proposed facility will foster greater efficiencies to ensure these services remain responsive to the needs of the community.

The new building will feature a larger footprint than the existing site; better facilities for public coronial hearings including two additional courts; improved public waiting areas; considerably improved amenities and technology for staff; and a modern functional design to accommodate contemporary work practices and family support services.

Our Role

Root Partnerships has been involved from the business case to the schematic design stage. A fly-through of the proposed complex can be seen at
