How many cases of decompression sickness have there been, in Jersey, in the last 10 years?
Less than 10 incidents have been recorded within data that has been extracted for inpatient admissions back to 2011 / 2012.
Due to the small numbers involved it is not possible to provide a breakdown between each year as it would likely breach the privacy of individuals. Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
Article 25 Personal information

(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
