On January 28, 2014 the Health and Social Care Information Centre released the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Attendance data for 2012-13, taken from Hospital Episode Statistics.
This is the 6th annual publication of the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Attendance data within Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES). It covers the period April 2012 to March 2013 and draws on just over 18 million detailed records of attendances at major A&E departments, single specialty A&E departments, minor injuries units and walk-in centres in England. Publishing the A&E HES data enables initial conclusions to be presented for discussion and aims to promote and highlight the uses of this potentially rich data set. The publication also includes analysis of the A&E HES data compared to the NHS England Weekly Situation Reports (Sit Reps), the official source of A&E information, to highlight areas for further investigation.
This data covers England, and provides data for Strategic Health Authorities, NHS Trusts, Hospital Trusts and Primary Care Trusts. Data tables provided include breakdowns by age, gender, and arrival by day, month, hour and method of arrival. NHS organisations can review their own data to ascertain the extent to which their local trend follows the national pattern. This can be done by using the accompanying interactive provider-level analysis file.
