Ministry of Justice releases Stephen Carré prevention of future deaths (PFD) report. 

What: In response to a freedom of information request from Disability News Service, the Ministry of Justice provides copies of pre-25/7/13 PFD reports that were sent to DWP (before that date the department only published six-month summaries of PFDs). One of the three is the PFD report into the death of Stephen Carré, which was sent to DWP in March 2010.

Why significant: The report proves that DWP had already been warned about the safety of the WCA by a coroner – and particularly the need to secure further medical evidence if the claimant has a mental health condition – four years before it received the Michael O’Sullivan PFD report.
