Knife injury and knife crime in hospitals
Andy Buckwell made this Freedom of Information request to Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust as part of a batch sent to 109 authorities
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?
