Our new report is out now. You can download it from our website here.
We are delighted to launch the 2019 IRIS National Data Report. The report contains data to 31st march 2019, from all of the 41 sites where IRIS has ever been commissioned.
Our local teams send up data to IRISi every quarter and this is then summarised annually into a full report.
The findings in our report not only show the positive impact that IRIS programmes make to clinical practice and excellent outcomes for patients but also provide firm evidence of effectiveness to support local sustainability and growth of IRIS programmes. We also hope that our report will help to secure the business case for commissioning of more IRIS services in the UK.
Our headline figures are:
- Over 900 general practices in England and Wales fully IRIS trained.
- Over 15,500 women directly referred by IRIS trained clinicians into specialist support.
- 96% of women pleased to be asked about domestic violence and abuse by their clinician
- 98% pleased to be referred to their local IRIS Advocate Educator
- 86% of women felt safer as a result of the referral and support
- 72% of women report visiting their GP or practice nurse less than before their IRIS referral
“I’m grateful that the GP referred me. It was amazing. She listened and was really supportive. I think it’s brilliant for anyone that needs that support as you do feel you’re isolated. To know that you’re not (alone) and you’re mot the only one going through a dark tunnel is a massive relief and you knowthere’s a light at the end.” Woman supported through her local IRIS service
We have a limited supply of hard copies – first come, first served! If you would like to receive one drop us an email here.
We will be producing a shorter, A5 summary booklet which will be more widely available and also posted on our website in due course.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and wish you all a peaceful and relaxing seasonal period and a very happy new year.
