Monthly delayed transfers of care Data Provision Notice

Overview

The information is collected to monitor and measure the number of delays in discharging patients from a hospital bed who are medically fit to be discharged. The data, statistical commentary and guidance are available at the NHS England website.

These statistics are used to provide information to the public and other stakeholders, to highlight where delayed transfers of care are an issue, and how they have changed over time. They are also used to feed into the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework as figures can be split by Local Authority.
