Request Summary: Assault attendances to Emergency Department 2020

Request Category: Researcher

Question Number 1:
The data we require are as follows (for period 1st January 2020 and 31st December 2020) in an electronic format that allows us to read the data into a database. Many hospitals respond to our survey and provide data in the form we require. Preferably this format is in an excel file or comma separated text file.

We require the gender of the patient (M or F), the date that they attended due to assault (dd/mm/yyyy) and their age. Age can either be numerical to the nearest year (preferred) or in age bands ("0-10", "11-17", "18-30", "31-50", "51+"), we can also accept date of birth.

To calculate the level of assault-related injury in England and Wales we also require the total number of attendances for any reason in the year of interest, i.e. 2020.

Please also include the names of hospitals providing assault data.
Answer To Question 1:
Please see attached for answer to FOI 5971. Due to the low numbers, and Trust policy to not release figures less than 5, it had to be grouped more than requested. 9342 - FOI_5971 - Assault attendances to ED 2020 v1 for issue.xlsx
