Dear Jess

Please may I seek clarification on your Freedom of Information request.

Please can you clarify whether you mean ‘Admissions’ (admitted to an inpatient ward / assessment unit) and not ‘Attendances’ (i.e. through A&E)?

Also, we do not have sufficient data to determine whether the cyclists were wearing helmets, nor the location that the incident occurred such as Worcester (but can provide the total number of head injuries regardless of location). Please let me know if you would like this information.

I look forward to hearing from you. If I do not hear from you by 21 January 2019, I will close the request.

Thank you.
