Coroners' Prevention of Future Deaths Reports 2013-2024 sent to the Council

The request was partially successful.

Georgia Richards

Dear Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request data on coroners' Prevention of Future Deaths reports (PFDs or Reg 28 letters) received by the Council. Can I please request the following:

1. the total number of PFDs where the Council was a listed addressee from inception (July 2013) until June 2024 (or the most recent available data), broken down as annual counts for each calendar year (e.g. for 2013, the number of reports from Jul to Dec; for 2014 the number of reports from January to December).

2. the total number of PFDs where the Council was copied for information as an ‘interested person’ from inception (July 2013) until June 2024 (or the most recent available data), broken down as annual counts for each calendar year (e.g. for 2013 the number of reports from Jul to Dec; for 2014 the number of reports from January to December).

Yours faithfully,
Dr Georgia Richards

Dear Dr Richards

 

Thank you for your request (below) submitted under the Freedom of
Information Act.

 

Please note that the Bournemouth Borough, Christchurch Borough and Poole
Borough Councils were abolished in March 2019 and replaced with
Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council. Information has been
checked for each of these former Councils and provided below, we hope this
provides the information you were seeking.

 

We have also sought the opinion of the Dorset Coroner Service in relation
to this request who have informed me that all reports are sent through the
Chief Coroner and will now be published on the Judiciary website. The
information published is all that is held in respect of your request and
is as follows:
