    The Trust does not hold figures on self-harm therefore we are unable to respond to this question.

     

    1. From calendar years 2010 to 2019: Annual figures for the number of paramedics who were recorded as committing suicide while being employed by your Trust.

    We also have only just begun a national suicide register.  Prior to this the Trust only recorded death in service.

    At the end of last quarter we had no submissions.
