DWP sends out reminder to staff about six-point suicide prevention plan.

What: DWP sends out a reminder to its staff about its six-point plan, which explains to them how to deal with statements by claimants that they intend to self-harm or take their own lives.

Why significant: DWP reveals this reminder when it responds to the information rights tribunal findings the following month (see 3 March 2016). It is possible it sent out the reminder because of that legal case, or in response to another suicide.
