Subject:        E-cigarette injuries

 

 

Request:

I am looking to receive details on how many patients have been admitted to hospital with injuries caused by e-cigarettes since 2013.

Can this please be broken down into separate figures for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 so far?

If possible, could I also be provided with a brief description of the injuries suffered in each case?

There is no way that we can identify the use of e–cigarettes through the assignment of clinical codes.
