FOI Request Recorded Suicides

Request 101001569201

(1) How many suicides coroners dealt with involved a person with either a terminal illness or an incurable condition such as MS, MND, Parkinsons etc. ?
(2) If you do not record this information, will you now do so?

Response 15-08-2017

We cannot respond to this request as the suicide numbers are so small across Moray and even less for those who had an underlying 'terminal' medical condition that this information may become person identifiable. This information is exempt under Section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Personal Information. 

NHSG do record any underlying health issues but they cannot always be attributed to the death of the individual.
