Vulnerable persons register observing familys trauma without contact pre or post suicide for data

k made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Department of Internal Affairs should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: k

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

I request all information on what services were put in place to risk assess the Vulnerable Persons List. This template is on the CASA website.
Vulnerable people are what the Waikato dhb, and some members of community boards the police feel that suicide is imminent due to a family member having committed suicide recently or a close friend, or a cluster of suicides in a contained area.

The suggestion that varied services observe these elected 'Vulnerable Persons'. Without contact and without knowledge of such a list.

Casa also goes on to pinpoint specific data that is maintained for some 10years and is to be shared with relevant authorities.

I have already request privately all the information regarding myself and my family members who were told by a slightly honest representative for the crown that my eldest son and myself have been on this list since 2019. To no avail. Nothing has been forthcoming at all.

Casa states that certain managers of each DHB hold the list as well as themselves, and the relevant services have access to this database.

1. What the cost of maintaining this list is for each dhb.

2. What are the observers having to observe and where is the critical point that would be addressed by making contact with a listee in order to assist

3. I would like to know how many people are on this list. either
A: with knowledge and consent or
B: completely unaware

4 How and who collates the data collected.

5 HOW MANY PERSONS HAVE COMMITTED SUICIDE WHILST EITHER
A: BEING ON THE LIST
B: HAVING FAMILY MEMBERS ON THIS LIST FOR EXTENDED PERIOD WITH NO CONTACT.

6. I would like to know who is the administrator and who is responsible for the inadequate and inhumane structure of observing without any contact to the persons being observed, even after a family member may commit suicide.

7. Under what human and legal rights as well as privacy laws does this 'Observing and collating data' use or fail to use

8.What funding is allocated for this VPL and for the varied govt services that are coerced to perform this.

9. Whether ACC is prepared to cover the cost of traumatic loss of life whilst being observed on the list. to cover government subsidised breach of ethics, laws, finacial accountability, morality and humanity.

10. Have you heard of the cartwright enquiry?

In good faith and displaying a lot more regard than the orchestrators of this list,
k,

Subject: NOTIFICATION OF TRANSFER OIA2021-0499

 

Kia ora koutou,

 

The Department of Internal Affairs has received the attached request,
which relates to District Health Boards and ACC and is transferring this
request in part to each DHB, and in part to ACC for response. 

 

Transfer of parts 1-8 and 10 is made in accordance with section 14(b)(i)
and (ii) of the Act.  The information requested is not held by the
Department of Internal Affairs, but we believe it is held by, and more
closely related to the functions of individual District Health Boards

 

I note that we consulted with the Ministry of Health regarding transfer of
this request to them and they directed it was to be transferred to
District Health Boards.  If you are receiving notice of this transfer
through a channel you would prefer not to be used for transfer of OIA
requests, I recommend you consider clearly listing your preferred OIA
contact address on your website.

 

Transfer of part 9 is made in accordance with section 14(b)(i) and (ii) of
the Act.  The information requested is not held by the Department of
Internal Affairs, but we believe it is held by, and more closely related
to the functions of ACC

 

I attach the original request and notification of transfer sent to the
requester.

 

You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of
this decision to transfer.  Information about how to make a complaint is
available at [31]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or Freephone 0800 802 602.  

 

Ngā mihi

Subject: Your Official Information Act request OIA2021-0499 (corrected)

 

Tēnā koe K,

 

Thank you for your OIA request to the Department of Internal Affairs
(included with this email).  The Department of Internal Affairs does not
have any function triaging, overseeing or regulating Official Information
Act requests across all of government, and has no authority over the way
that other agencies respond to their requests.  When making OIA requests
please try to directly contact the agency, entity or Minister that you
believe holds the information you are looking for.

 

As the information you have requested in parts 1 - 8 and 10 is not held by
the Department of Internal Affairs, but is believed to be held by, and
more closely related to the functions of Health, we consulted with the
Ministry of Health on transfer.  We have been advised that your questions
are more appropriately directed to District Health Boards for response.  I
am therefore notifying that these parts of your request are being
transferred to all District Health Boards, in accordance with section
14(b) of the Official Information Act 1982.

 

You can expect to hear from District Health Boards shortly in regard to
your request.

If you would like to contact them directly, you are able to email them at
the following addresses:   (Note that some District Health Boards do not
appear to have OIA contact email addresses, or in fact any email addresses
on their websites.  I have done my best to source contact information for
these).

Department of Internal Affairs, but is believed to be held by, and more
closely related to the functions of ACC, this part of your request being
transferred to ACC, in accordance with section 14(b) of the Official
Information Act 1982.

Dear K

 

Re: Official Information Act request – Vulnerable persons register

 

We refer to your official information request received by Nelson
Marlborough DHB on 11 March 2021.

 

The Official Information Act requires that we advise you of our decision
on your request no later than 20 working days after the day we received
your clarification. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that
time limit and we are therefore writing to notify you of an extension of
the time of an additional 20 working days to make our decision, to 11 May
2021.

 

This extension is necessary because, and as specified under Section
15A(1)(b) of the Official Information Act 1982, ‘consultations necessary
to make a decision on the request are such that a proper response cannot
reasonably be made within the original time limit’.

 

On behalf of the responding services, we will endeavour to respond to your
request as soon as reasonably practicable.

 

You have the right to seek an investigation by the Ombudsman of this
decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at
[1]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or free phone 0800 802 602.

Re: Official Information Act request – Vulnerable persons register

 

The Nelson Marlborough District Health Board acknowledges receipt of your
request for Information under the Official Information Act 1982 (“the

Internal Affairs and received on 11 March 2021.

 

Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate person/service for
response within 20 working days of receipt, and if we are unable to
respond to your request by 12 April 2021 we will notify you of an
extension of that timeframe.

 

Consistent with the purpose of the Act, the letter notifying you of the
decision on your request will confirm if we intend to publish the
information contained in the response online, with your
personal/identifying information redacted.

 

We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as reasonably
practicable.

 

Thank you for your request.
