Female genital mutilation figures

In September 2014, 467 female patients treated at reporting acute NHS hospital trusts in England were newly identified as having been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM).

The data published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre are the first official figures to have been published on the numbers of FGM cases seen in hospitals in England. Of the 160 acute hospital trusts in England, 125 returned data for September.
