Efforts for local violence prevention have used mainly emergency department (ED) data to inform police operations. However, research has shown the effectiveness of health data sharing in violence prevention. This project builds on this evidence and utilises data from Police, the Ambulance Service and EDs from three health boards to provide a holistic representation of violence at a local level so that contributing factors can be identified and used to inform preventative action. This report outlines the set up of a local routine surveillance system to inform violence prevention.
