The information is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

Information on the number of reported physical assaults against NHS staff in 2012-13 is contained in the document; ‘Tables showing the number of reported physical assaults on NHS staff in 2012-13’ has been placed in the Library. The tables cover 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013 which is the latest period for which information is available. They show the employing NHS bodies of victims of assault but not the location of assaults or the roles of staff assaulted.
