|Answer To Question 1:|
Q1. In each of the last three calendar years including 2023 so far, the number of children treated for injuries caused as a result of riding an e scooter or being involved in a collision with one is - less than or equal to 5.
We are unable to provide exact numbers due to potentially being patient identifiable.
Q2. There were 0 deaths.
Q3. As per Question 1, we are unable to provide details of injuries as this would breach patient confidentiality. We cannot provide length of stay details as none of the patients referred to in Question 1 were admitted from the Emergency Department.
