Child Injury (CIPIC)

The Child Injury Health Integration Team (HIT) is a team of nurses, doctors, practitioners and scientists, working together to reduce the number of unintentional injuries to children across the Bristol area. They are also aiming to improve the outcome for patients when those injuries do happen, and reduce the burden that avoidable childhood injuries place on overstretched NHS resources. More than 14,000 children were treated in emergency departments and minor injury units in Bristol during 2011.

Each year in England, around 452,000 children under five attend an emergency department following an unintentional injury, 40,000 are admitted to hospital and about 60 die. Most of these injuries are potentially preventable.
