Since the Coronavirus outbreak, Ikoy have been offering advice to both medico-legal experts and MROs about how to best deal with the administration of their workloads. We have also hosted some pages, along with text friendly short URLs to make the process easier. There are no charges for anyone to use these pages or the short URLs and for these reasons we have tried to make them as generic as possible.
