Injuries: Offensive Weapons

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 23 March 2009, Official Report, column 158W, on injuries: offensive weapons, how many people aged (a) under 16, (b) between 16 and 18, (c) between 19 and 25, (d) between 26 and 35, (e) between 36 and 50 and (f) over 50 years were admitted to hospital in each primary care trust area in London as a result of assault with a (i) sharp and (ii) blunt object in (A) 2008 and (B) 2009; and how many such people required (1) emergency and (2) intensive care as a result of being assaulted with an (x) sharp and (y) blunt object in each of those years. (323948)

Information has been provided to show the number of finished admission episodes by selected cause codes and age groups, between 2007-08 and 2008-09 for primary care trusts (PCTs) of residence in the London area.

It is important to note that as people may be admitted on more than one occasion, the data supplied do not describe the number of people admitted to hospital. Additionally, information on the “PCT of residence” does not necessarily reflect where the patient was treated, as they may have travelled to another strategic health authority or PCT for treatment.

We are unable to determine how many such people required emergency and intensive care as a result of being assaulted by a sharp and blunt object in each of those years.

Count of finished admission episodes where cause code indicates assault by a sharp object (X99) or blunt object (Y00) for selected London PCTs of residence by age breakdown 2007-08 and 2008-09. Activity in English NHS Hospitals and English NHS commissioned activity in the independent sector

Notes:

1. Ungrossed data (i.e. not adjusted for shortfalls).

2. Small numbers

To protect patient confidentiality, figures between 1 and 5 have been replaced with “*” (an asterisk). Where it was still possible to identify numbers from the total an additional number (the next smallest) has been replaced.

3. Finished admission episodes

A finished admission episode (FAE) is the first period of inpatient care under one consultant within one health care provider. FAEs are counted against the year in which the admission episode finishes. Admissions do not represent the number of in-patients, as a person may have more than one admission within the Year.

4. SHA/PCT of residence

The strategic health authority (SHA) or primary care trust (PCT) containing the patient's normal home address. This does not necessarily reflect where the patient was treated as they may have travelled to another SHA/PCT for treatment.

5. Activity included

Activity in English NHS Hospitals and English NHS commissioned activity in the independent sector.

6. Cause code

A supplementary code that indicates the nature of any external cause of injury, poisoning or other adverse effects. Only the first external cause code which is coded within the episode is counted in HES.
