So - the answer? By my reckoning, at least 8 people are needed in this government establishment to adjust a PC monitor.
And the reason for this is the following policy procedure that staff should follow if they feel that their workstation screen needs adjustment:
1) request an assessment from the Health & Safety office (1 admin person to take the call, 1 assessor to come out)
2) If there is found to be a need, this is reviewed by Occupational Health (1 admin person to take the call, 1 assessor to come out)
3) A request for the adjustment is then submitted by your line manager (1 person) to the IT department (1 admin person to take the call, 1 technician to come out)
4) The diversity officer should also be informed (1 officer to file a report)
Is it any wonder then why governments take so long to do anything and it costs us so much for them to do it when they do?
