Accident and Emergency Data Sharing in London: Early Lessons for Policy and Practice
Accident and emergency departments (A&E) can contribute effectively to violence prevention by working with Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) and by sharing, electronically wherever possible, simple anonymised data. This data can be used to enhance the effectiveness of both targeted policing and enforcement activity, contributing local CDRP violence reduction strategies. The ultimate objective in both cases is the reduction of all types of violent crime, which will also result in a reduction in A&E violence related attendances. To support this work across London, Perpetuity undertook a London-wide review for Government Office London. This report presents the findings of early progress made towards the establishment of systems for the sharing of hospital accident and emergency (A&E) data.
