    I would like to know the number of opiate related incidents whereby Naloxone Hydrochloride was administered between the following dates:

    • 2015-2016
    • 2016-2017
    • 2017-2018
    • 2018-2019
    • The number of non-opiate related incidents whereby Naloxone Hydrochloride was administered between the following dates:
    • 2015-2016
    • 2016-2017
    • 2017-2018
    • 2018-2019

    To locate and collate this information the Trust would have to look into all of the relevant Patient Care Records to see if Naloxone Hydrochloride was administered. The Trust has determined that this would take over the 18 hour limit laid down in the Freedom of Information Act, therefore we are applying exemption s.12 to the two questions above.

     

    • Is the shortage of Naloxone Hydrochloride having an effect on the service?

    The Trust has not seen a shortage in Naloxone Injections.

    This may relate to the tablet form, which we do not use within this Trust.

     

    • The number of needle-stick injuries reported between the following dates.
    • 2016-2017
    • 2017-2018
    • 2018-2019

    This information can be found in our monthly IPC Audit Reports which are published on our website.  As this information is already reasonably accessible the Trust is applying exemption s.21 of the Freedom of Information Act to this part of your request.  To fulfil our obligations to assist requestors under s.16 of the Act, please see below a link to the relevant action on our website:
