16950 - Prison Callouts

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information available
under the Freedom of Information Act with regard to ambulances attending prisons
in your area.

Firstly,
up until the end of year 2017, please can you say how many 'call outs' you
received to prisons in your area, or on neighbouring patches? If possible, can
you say which prisons you attended, and if it is available, what sort of medical
emergency you were called to (eg. attempted suicide, drugs overdose - if so any
classification of type, assault, death etc)?

Secondly,
can you provide similar figures for 2016, and if available for the years, 2015,
2014 and 2013?

Finally,
do you have the statistics in my first question for any months of the months of
this year (2018)?
