Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Trust have responded to figures released under the Freedom of Information Act that show the trust recorded 923 incidents of face-down restraint.
Reasons for restraint can include a patient being violent or aggressive to either themselves or others with a small percentage of patients requiring high levels of restraint due to the complex nature of their illness.
Analysis of our figures has shown that a small group of less than 50 patients, who demonstrate very complex and high-risk behaviours, account for over two thirds of the recorded incidents of restraint.
