attended

A UK term of art used in statutory language referring to the doctor who cared for (“attended”) a particular patient during the illness that led to death and thus is familiar with the patient’s medical history, investigations, and treatment. The certifying doctor (i.e., the doctor signing the medical certificate of cause of death) should also have access to relevant medical records and the results of investigations.
