Physical assaults on staff

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management Specialty: Psychiatry/ Mental Health

The following information was requested:

I’d be grateful if you could provide me with the a) number of claims made b) number of claims successful and c) total compensation paid for each of the last 5 financial years for:

  1. Injuries to the eye due to physical assaults on staff in mental health Trusts
  2. Injuries to the face due to physical assaults on staff in mental health Trusts
  3. All physical assaults on staff in mental health Trusts

If it is not possible to break this data down to this level, I will accept data for all NHS Trusts. I am only asking about injuries to staff. Any further details that can be provided on nature of injury would be helpful but please ignore if it makes it too costly to process.
