Support after Shipman: the role of Victim Support and the Witness Service - Appendix A: Notes on the literature review

In terms of this research, the literature review concentrated on the volume and type of Victim Support and Witness Service work necessary in cases of multiple homicide. No other accounts were found that were applicable to this research.

Two other research papers regarding the needs of families of homicide victims, in particular the effects of the homicide on the families, one paper specifically dealing with families affected by the Shipman trial, are due to be published shortly by Victim Support National Office (Mezey, Hobdell & Evans, forthcoming).
