Abstract

Violence is a preventable public health problem and yet there are over one million violent incidents each year in England and Wales, approximately half of which involve alcohol and one-quarter of which occur in night-time economy environments. Between April 2013 and March 2016 there were 14,427 attendances to Lancashire Emergency Departments (EDs) by residents of Lancashire for injuries sustained from violence. This TIIG Lancashire report presents data and analyses relating to the locations of violence, specifically in terms of patient area of residence, as determined by ED data, and ambulance call out location, as determined by North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) data. Trends are also presented in terms of geographic compositions of assault ED attendances/ambulance call outs, deprivation and, in terms of ED data, incident location categories and attendance details. Analyses also compare ED data (patient geography) with NWAS data (location geography), particularly in terms of attendance/call out numbers and rates by local/unitary authority areas and lower super output areas.
