Coroner Tom Osborne files a Prevention of Future Deaths report on the death of Roy Curtis, but the DWP is not mentioned.

What: The PRD report states ‘the procedure for allocating and responding to a referral for an urgent adult social care assessment is overly bureaucratic and they are not afforded the priority within social services that they so obviously require.’ Roy Curtis’ experiences with the DWP are not mentioned [see 18 November 2018].

Why significant: Opportunity missed to highlight the role of the DWP’s policies in leading to suicide
