The Department directly liaises with the Liverpool NHS Trust on their findings however their research is conducted independently. We have also received findings from the Bristol NHS Trust via the West of England Combined Authority.

The latest available information collected on e-scooters through STATS19 has been made publicly available through the e-scooter factsheet. The latest published year covers the year ending June 2021:
