Unexplained Fractures in Babies

B McKenzie made this Freedom of Information request to Kent Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Kent Police should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Kent Police,

Please could you provide all statistical data you hold, in relation to fractures in babies, going back from 2011 to whatever date is reasonable.

I am particularly interested in

1. The Local Authority Area
2. Name of the Hospital
3. Whether the Fractures had an organic explanation. (If so what was the cause eg. Brittle bones, Vitamin D deficiency etc)
4. Whether the Fractures were recorded as non accidental.
5. Whether a criminal trial ensued.
6. Whether the child was adopted.
7. Whether the child died from the injuries.

I appreciate that it may not be possible to provide all the above listed information however I would be grateful to receive whatever information you have available and signposting towards other organisations who may hold the relevant data.

Yours faithfully,

B McKenzie

Dear B McKenzie,
 
Any information captured by your request, if held by Kent Police, would be
contained in the detail of individual criminal investigations and would
not be held as statistical data. Since such statistical data is not held
by Kent Police, I advise you re-direct your application to the relevant
NHS Trusts in Kent, starting perhaps with the Kent & Medway NHS and Social
