Hundreds of new FGM cases reported during October

In October the Health and Social Care Information Centre published the first monthly return of FGM cases reported by acute hospital providers in England during September 2014. That showed that 125 of the 160 eligible acute trusts in England submitted signed off data reported a total of 467 newly identified cases and 1,279 active cases (ie patients identified as having a history of any FGM type prior to the reporting period and still being actively seen).

The HSCIC has now published the return for October. It shows that 109 acute hospital providers reported a total of 455 newly identified cases and 1,468 active cases.

The report is here.
