Dear Lisa

If possible could you provide details of the numbers of reported physical assaults which took place on mental health facility premises run by your Trust by patients on staff and by patients on other patients. Ideally broken down by those where a weapon/object was involved and those that didn't. I'm not sure if you categorise the severity of incidents but, if so, this information would also be good to have.
I hope that helps to clarify the request.

Yours sincerely,

Mike Overthrow
