Learn more about Hospital Episode Statistics Data Quality at the data quality information and reports on the Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES).
The Emergency Care Data Set (ECDS) is the national data set for urgent and emergency care. It replaced Accident & Emergency Commissioning Data Set (CDS type 010) and was implemented through ECDS (CDS 6.2.2 Type 011).
ECDS allows NHS Digital to provide information to support the care provided in emergency departments by including the data items needed to understand capacity and demand and help improve patient care.
All the ECDS data quality reports on this page are classified as experimental data.
