Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

I'm trying to gain an understanding of how CAMHS patients are treated.

I'd be really greatful if you could let me have the following information on an annual basis over the last 5 years

How many calls do you attend that are related to mental health?

Of these calls how many are aged 19 years and under?

Of these calls what are the reasons? E.g. Self harming, overdose, eating disorder, crisis etc

What % of these patients are taken to A&E

What % of your work is attending to mental health related issues.

Yours faithfully,

Nicola Dye

Dear Nicola,
 
Further to your FOI request, as per below, requesting Trust information on
mental health calls. Please see the following in response to your request.
 
Please note: It is difficult to identify mental health related calls as
information is based on information taken at the time of the call. This
report includes incidents recorded under the following categories:
- Psychiatric/Suicide Attempt
- Overdose/Poisoning (Intentional)
-Stab/Gunshot/Pentrating Trauma (Self Inflicted)
- Mental Health Admission
-Mental Health Section 135/136
- Mental Health tag code added to the call

Please note that overrides can be applied to the nature of the incident
for response escalation or during re-triage which means the original
nature is lost.
