Hertfordshire suicide audit
The suicide audit aims to give a view of deaths by suicide within Hertfordshire compared to the rest of the UK.
In time, it will also enable a year-on-year comparison to identify county-specific trends. This information can be used to inform the suicide prevention strategy and planned actions.
The 2017 audit includes 74 deaths between 1 Jan and 31 Dec 2017. Because of the time delay between a death occurring and the inquest taking place, the majority of deaths occurred in 2016.
