Prepared internally, no external costs.
In the Controller and Auditor General's recent report on Jersey's Community and Social Services provision (attached below), Karen McConnell says that, "since 2006, six improvement notices have been issued by the Health and Safety Inspectorate (HSI) concerning Health and Social Services Department (HSSD), later Health and Community Services (HCS)."
The report states that these involve "failure to adequately manage violence and aggression and ensure a safe environment in a healthcare setting." For your reference, this is on page 25 of her report within the case study section.
