Should families be able to request a Fatal Accident Inquiry?

I feel families should have the right to ask for a fai if they feel there loved one has been failed. My partner was failed after he was repeatedly turned away by the hospital, he went onto take his own life. I have repeatedly asked for a fai and been told his case does not fall under the rules and it not in the public best interests. I feel a fai would help prevent the same mistake from happen again and helping further generations.
