Summary

The Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Enhanced Dataset (SCCI 2026) is a repository for individual level data collected by healthcare providers in England, including acute hospital providers, mental health providers and GP practices

Key Facts

The Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Enhanced Dataset (SCCI 2026) supports the Department of Health's FGM Prevention Programme by presenting a national picture of the prevalence of FGM in England.

 

Caution is advised throughout any interpretation of these findings because data completeness is often low and varies by commissioning region and submitter.

 

· Between July and September 2016 there were 1,971 attendances2 reported at NHS trusts and GP practices where FGM was identified or a procedure for FGM was undertaken.

· There were 1,204 women and girls who had their FGM information collected in the Enhanced Dataset for the first time1. This does not indicate how recently the FGM was undertaken, nor does it necessarily mean that this is the woman or girl's first attendance for FGM. It is the first time their information has been collected in the FGM Enhanced Dataset.

 

Definitions

1 Newly Recordedwomen and girls with FGM are those who have had their FGM information collected in the FGM Enhanced Dataset for the first time. This will include those identified as having FGM and those having treatment for their FGM.

 

'Newly recorded' does not necessarily mean that the attendance is the woman or girl's first attendance for FGM.

 

2 Total Attendancesrefers to all attendances in the reporting period where FGM was identified or a procedure for FGM was undertaken. Women and girls may have one or more attendances in the reporting period. This category includes both newly recorded and previously identified women and girls.
