Dear Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime,

Subsequent to the 2010 Coalition agreement (link below) I understand, from the government's Coalition Agreement, that hospitals were asked to share non-confidential information on gun and knife crime in London with the police.

I would be very grateful if you could tell me whether you are receiving this information yet from the following hospitals:
King's College (Southwark)
St. Thomas's (Lambeth)

I would also be grateful if you could give me an appropriate summary of the changes to local policing that have resulted.

Yours faithfully,

Rob Blackie

MOPAC FOI, Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime

Dear Mr Blackie

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 23 January to the Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC). I confirm that your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000 and that MOPAC does some hold information relating to your request.

Both King’s College and St. Thomas’ Hospitals share data as part of the Information Sharing To Tackle Violence (ISTV) programme. Four anonymised data points are shared:
• Time and date of the incident
• Time and date of arrival in the Emergency Department
• Location of the incident
• Primary means of assault

These data are shared with the Greater London Authority and incorporated into the SafeStats portal which is accessible to those working in community safety - including the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).

Regarding your question relating to any changes to local policing that have resulted from this data sharing, the MPS would need to advise as to how they use these data and any resultant changes to local policing. You can contact the MPS with your FOI request, here:
https://www.met.police.uk/rqo/request/ri...

If you are unhappy with the response to your Freedom of Information request, please see the MOPAC website on what the next steps are at:
