SIM2305 - Restricting public access to information on ligatures, points of ligature and other means of self-harm



Safety alerts are issued to protect the safety of patients, staff and others. However, the safety information message (SIM) referred to above contains information which could lead to safety being compromised if misused. To mitigate this risk, the SIM has been cascaded directly to health and social care facilities, but it has not been uploaded to the public internet. This restricted alert placeholder has been uploaded in place of the alert. If you require a copy of the SIM, and you are a public or civil service employee, please make contact as indicated in the Enquiries section below. We reserve the right not to share this safety alert with organisations and persons who are unable to demonstrate an appropriate requirement for the information it contains.
