FGM statistics published

Between July 2021 and September 2021 there were 1,530 individual women and girls who had an attendance where FGM was identified. These accounted for 2,550 attendances reported at NHS trusts and GP practices where FGM was identified.

There were 665 newly recorded women and girls in the period between July 2021 and September 2021. 'Newly recorded' means that this is the first time they have appeared in the dataset. It does not indicate how recently their FGM was undertaken, nor does it mean that this is the woman or girl's first attendance for FGM. The number of newly recorded women and girls has reduced over time. This is to be expected as the longer the collection of data continues, the greater the chance of a woman or girl having been recorded in it previously.
