Prepared internally, no external costs.
How many still births have been recorded over the past 10-years broken down month by month, this should include in the hospital or at home or anywhere else within Jersey
The number of registered stillbirths in Jersey between 2012 to 2021 were as follows:
Of the 33 deaths fewer than five occurred at a location outside of the hospital. Whilst there may be public interest in the monthly number and/or place of death, the granular detail requested could identify the specific individuals – the release of such data negatively impacting living relatives or other connected individuals. It is therefore considered that it would not be in the public interest to release that information and Article 25 of the Freedom of Information Law (Jersey) 2011 has been applied.
Article 25 - Personal information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
