The Department of Health established a programme to support A&E departments to share non-confidential information with community safety partnerships locally to help tackle gun, knife and other violent crime. In 2014, the department carried out an audit to:

  • Examine how information sharing is being implemented.
  • Look into motivational and technical issues that might affect implementation of the programme.

This report sets out the audit’s findings.
