Summary

Directly age and sex standardised admission rate for emergency admissions for acute conditions that should not usually require hospital admission per 100,000 registered patients, 95% confidence intervals (CI).

As of the March 2020 release, the data included in the December 2019 publication for the 2018/19, July 2018 to June 2019 (Provisional) and October 2018 to September 2019 (Provisional) data periods has been revised. This is due to a revision of a large proportion of records for East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (RXC) which had missing information for the condition the patient was in hospital for and other conditions the patients suffer from. The revised data for these reporting periods also differs from that originally published in December 2019 in that the HES database is routinely updated (overwritten) on a monthly basis for the year in progress. Data for the two provisional periods remain provisional, but is now more complete than it was when the December 2019 publication was released. This effect cannot be readily separated from the effect of the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (RXC) resubmission which also took place after processing for the December 2019 publication.
