Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Please find attached a spreadsheet detailing bariatric incidents (first spreadsheet) and all special incidents (second spreadsheet) attended by Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service from January 2016 to January 2017. Some personal information has been removed (post code) as an individual may be identified through this. The spreadsheet is broken down by month with the details of each incident, where this was recorded.
