Violent crime is on the rise in the UK. The police, local authorities and other partners must form stronger bonds to combat violence. One way to do this is to improve the sharing of A&E data relating to violent crime, and the Government's recent Serious Violence Strategy looks to strengthen this approach.

Join Westminster Briefing to receive an up-to-date briefing on how A&E and other health data can be used to tackle violence locally. This is an opportunity to explore how proactive measures can feed into your strategy and reduce crime.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Understanding the role of health data in combating violent crime
  • How can raw data be used to predict and prevent crime?
  • Working with local partners to collect and share data
  • Using data to inform your strategy and assess impact
  • Youth violence: reducing gang activity and knife crime
  • Case studies and examples of local success
  • Improving your dialogue with local health partners
