WAGGA MP Dr Joe McGirr said high-level work has started to conduct coronial autopsies in Wagga to alleviate backlogs so grieving families may bury their loved ones sooner.
Dr McGirr met with Attorney General Mark Speakman and Health Minister Brad Hazzard and earlier this week about the matter.
"It's very clear that work has begun to bring all the agencies together to tackle this issue," Dr McGirr said.
"It was also decided that we need to bring police into this discussion, as well as the health services, forensic pathology and the coroner's office."
Cootamundra mother Gloria Schultz and Gundagi's Jill Jones were left waiting for weeks for the return of their sons' bodies from Newcastle's Department of Forensic Medicine after they died in 2017.
"I've been in regular contact with Jill and Gloria on this issue and appreciate their perspectives and support very much," Dr McGirr said.
"It's a very difficult situation for them. It doesn't have to be that way.
"There's a very serious recognition now by the government."
In February this year, statewide clinical director of forensic medicine Dr Isabel Brouwer said the procedures were performed at Newcastle due to their complex nature.
