Request:

In the calendar year, 2019 and Jan 1st 2020 and July 21st 2020

How many reports of drug thefts has there been at any hospital managed by the trust

Please provide the name of the drug that was stolen

 

 

Response:

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the information requested in this FOI. Incidents in Safeguard do not distinguish between medicines that are lost or stolen due to the fact that when staff reports the incident they only know that the medication is missing, not why. A wildcard search for medication incidents that include the word stolen did not produce any relevant incidents.
