To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S4W-27269 by Aileen McLeod on 14 September 2015, what its position is on introducing data coding for injuries arising from exposure to giant hogweed.

Answered by Aileen McLeod (05/11/2015):

There are many diverse environmental risks to health which may result in injury, including a number of garden plants, and it is not possible for all such types of injuries to be coded precisely. There are no plans to introduce coding for injuries caused by giant hogweed into the NHS Accident & Emergency data systems.
