The current National Referral Mechanism (NRM) system is not designed to be able

to accurately identify this type of information. Personal details collected at

the point of entry to the NRM are not currently recorded in a way which permits

the definitive identification of individuals who have been referred more than

once. This is due to a number of factors in the way the data is provided by

both responding agencies and potential victims, as well as how it is collated

and recorded. The recommendations of the NRM review, when implemented, will

make provision for this type of data in the future.
