The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has announced a new scheme that aims to address the number of accidents in Britain.

The Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust has introduced the Kiosk Injury Surveillance System, with financial backing from RoSPA's BNFL Scholarship Scheme, which will see patients anonymously answer a number of simple questions regarding their illness or injury.

Errol Taylor, RoSPA's deputy chief executive, said: "Because the government stopped collecting detailed home and leisure accident statistics more than a decade ago, it makes it very difficult to understand the circumstances which lead to millions of people suffering accidental injuries every year."

The representative continued by saying that the project can put together well-targeted prevention programmes, giving people the power to significantly ease the burden on the NHS.

Recently, the Laser Alliance launched an online resource profiler, which aims to boost its safety and risk education work, helping young people to be safer.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801467510-ADNFCR
