The Home Office does not hold centrally information on the total number of officers injured while on duty. However, statistics are routinely published on the number of recorded offences involving assault with injury on a constable.

These data are released as an annex to the annual ‘Police workforce, England and Wales’ statistical release, which can be accessed here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/police-workforce-england-and-wales
