The government continues to push for closer sharing of data between health services and police forces. A&E data can play a key role in predicting and preventing violence, but more needs to be done to exploit its potential.

Attend this Westminster Briefing to hear how A&E and other health data can be used to tackle violent crime in your area. You will hear about good practice case studies and network with colleagues from across the UK. This is a great opportunity to explore how you can embed this tool into your local community safety plans.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Understanding the role of hospitals and A&E in the criminal justice system
  • Working with hospitals, A&E departments, ambulance services and local partners to collect and share data
  • Alcohol-related crime and policing the night-time economy
  • Gang assaults and knife crime: using data to tackle youth violence
  • Learning from the ‘Cardiff Model’ to reduce hospital admissions for violence
  • Case studies of successful local strategies
  • What are the common obstacles to sharing hospital data? How can they be overcome?

About the Day:

The morning session will look at the Government’s strategy and guidance for using A&E and health data to reduce crime.
