  7. c) How many have been found to be potentially avoidable by either internal or external investigations, including inquests?

 

 

Response:

Prior to 2013 the records were paper based and that would have involved pulling casenotes and will take more than 2.5 days to retrieve and collect the information.

 

None were subjected to a serious incidents therefore no conclusions as to wether or not they were avoidable.
