Can I ask for the following information: for each of the last four financial years (including the current one) I request disclosure of data relating to children aged 15 and under who have been diagnosed with alcoholism or drug related conditions.
1. For each year I would like a table containing patients’ ages, from 0 to 15 years old accompanied by a figure for the number of children of that age who were diagnosed as alcoholic, alcohol poisoning, treated for alcoholism or excessive alcohol consumption (for example 2016/17: Age 15– 33 Age 14 – 3). Can you outline the figures for each?
2. For each financial year I would also like a table set out in the same way detailing the numbers of children aged 15 or below who were admitted to A&E suffering alcohol-related illness.
3. For each year I would like a table containing patients’ ages, from 0 to 15 years old accompanied by a figure for the number of children of that age who were diagnosed for drug related illnesses or over-consumption (for example 2016/17: Age 15– 33 Age 14 – 3).
4. For each financial year I would also like a table set out in the same way detailing the numbers of children aged 15 or below who were admitted to A&E suffering drug-related illness. Can you outline the figures for each?
