Detail

Home Office Research Report 46 summarises a process evaluation of an initiative to encourage data sharing between hospitals and local Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) in the South East.

Data sharing between EDs and CSPs is complex and covers several distinct, but linked stages: data collection, extraction, sharing, analysis and application. When each of these stages is undertaken successfully, the full benefits can be realised.

Across many areas in the South East, various aspects of the data sharing process were not working or barriers existed to successful implementation. However, interviewees stressed the potential of the schemes. The effort required by EDs to collect and process data is often considerable and the short-term benefits seem to be more clearly realised by the CSP.
