Details of the Response

The Trust does not hold the number of incidents recorded in each of the given categories and the only way to produce this data would be to read each incident. This would be in excess of the statutory limit and therefore the Trust considers this part of the request to be exempt under section 12 of the Act.

However the information on Serious Incidents is held against each of these categories (and also by division and time period) so that has been supplied in the attached spreadsheet. Please note that some SI’s might span more than one category but has been counted in the most appropriate category only.
