Summary

The indicators presented measure the percentage of emergency admissions to any hospital in England occurring within 30 days of the last, previous discharge from hospital over the period 2013/14 to 2018/19.

There is an ongoing review by NHS Digital of emergency readmissions indicators across the frameworks, many of which until last year, had not been published since 2014.

Phase one of this review was completed in early 2019 and involved the publication of two indicators : CCG Outcomes Indicator Set indicator 3.2 and NHS Outcomes Framework indicator 3b – Emergency readmissions within 30 days of discharge from hospital. This was followed by a subsequent publication in May 2019 of the Compendium emergency readmission indicators.

As part of phase two of this review we have consulted on the indicator specification and this release contains some tactical changes resulting in an update to the whole dataset. Phase two will then continue through 2020 to identify and develop the indicators further before publication in 2021.

Please refer to the specification in each dataset page and methodological change document for further details.

There are four datasets that include breakdowns by the following geographies: Region, ONS Area Classification (2011 census v2 revised), NHS England Regions, Local Authority of Residence, Public and Private Hospital Providers, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG), Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STP) and Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) Quintiles
