More than 1,000 sexual assaults have been reported on mixed-sex N H S  mental health wards in the last three years, figures show .

There were 1,019 reports of alleged sexual assaults between men and women in England from April 2017 to October 2019 .

Although trusts report following policies on single-sex accommodation, men and women in mental health units still mix in communal areas or in overloaded wards. .

The data was given by 47 out of a total 56 mental health trusts in an investigation by medical news website the Health Service Journal .

It revealed that, of the abuse reports, 491 were considered serious enough for staff to refer them to safeguarding services, while just 104 were reported to the police .
