This question was sent to the Department of Health for answer on the 16th January 2018. The HSE replied directly to the Deputy advising that cause of death determination is a coronal, not a HSE function and there is no formal feedback mechanism from the coroner's courts to the HSE, Mental Health Division. The HSE does not hold this information as requested. The Coroner may be able to assist you with your request.
