Knife injury and knife crime in hospitals
Dear NHS Hospital Trust,
I am making a Freedom of Information request for the following information:
Can you specify how many patients under the age of 18 have been treated for knife injuries in your Trust since 2013. Can you give a break down by age and sex.
Over the same period can you tell me how many staff while at work in Trust hospitals have been threatened with a knife or similar sharp object, or attacked by people using knives or similar sharp object.
How many staff or visitors (ie not patients) to Trust hospitals have required treatment following an attack in a hospital.
How many times have police been called to hospitals in the trust area to deal with incidents involving violent behaviour of patients or hospital visitors in each year from 2013 to present?
Thank you for your request for information that was received on 14 March 2019, this is being dealt with it under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
In some circumstances a fee may be payable and if that is the case, we will let you know. We will issue a formal fees notice before commencing the work, setting out the likely cost against the amount of time anticipated.
If you have any queries about this email, please contact me. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.
