The request was successful.
From: P.A Hamill
Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,
Thank you for your response to my request for information 0047387 regarding ACC and the coroners court.
In your response you mention that ACC
"provides the coroner with a summarised report of the information requested;and
makes certain staff available to respond to any further queries the coroner may have around the information supplied"
I request the following information
1 Is it the case manager at the time of the claimants death that puts the "summary of information together for the Coroner? If the answer is no why ?
2- if not the case manager at the time of the death, is it done in the branch that the claim was dealt with?
3- if it is not,the branch that puts the summary together what "branch or section " of ACC goes through the file and summarises the information for the coroner?
4- The "staff" that are made available to deal with any further requests made by the coroner what position do they hold at ACC i.e. do the fall into 1- 2- 3- from the above questions.
If the staff come under question 3- above can you please detail the position at ACC the staff member would hold.
5- After a suicide at what point is the electronic file "secured" or closed so that no changes or further information can be added or removed to any information contained within the claimant file?
6- In the last 15 years how many requests have been made by the coroners court to ACC regarding claimant files?
