     The Trust is unable to provide this data prior to 2019 as our ESR does not specify thereason for the death of an employee.  However in 2019 our Wellbeing team recorded 4 staff deaths by suicide

    The Trust is unable to confirm the exact number of those mentioned in our answer to question 1 who accessed help as we are currently transitioning between OH providers and these records are temporarily unavailable.
