Summary

The purpose of this indicator set is to help the National Health Service (NHS) monitor admissions for serious accidental injuries.

The directly age-standardised admission rate for accidents in persons of all ages was a target indicator in the Saving Lives: Our Healthier Nation strategy (See indicator specification “Further reading”).

The target was a 10% reduction by the year 2010 from the baseline rate in 1995/96.

For information on the definitions of what these indicators include, please see the relevant specification.
