Data sharing occurs between Emergency Departments (EDs) and Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) in principle not directly with the police.  We do not have access to data relating to admissions due to violent crime, only presentations at A&Es.

There are eleven hospitals currently sharing anonymised data with CSPs:

1.    Ealing (London North west NHS Trust)

2.    Homerton (Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust)

3.    King George's Ilford (Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospital NHS Trust)

4.    Kings College (King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust)

5.    North Middlesex (North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust)

6.    Queen's Romford (Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust)

7.    Royal London (Barts Health NHS Trust)

8.    St George's Tooting (St George's Healthcare NHS Trust)

9.    St Thomas' (Guy's Hospital and St Thomas NHS Trust)

10.                        West Middlesex (West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust)

11.                        Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

MOPAC officers are liaising with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, which includes St Mary's, Charing Cross and Hammersmith hospitals, to implement arrangements for data sharing.  Discussions with the remaining Hospital Trusts are ongoing.
