Content of this publication
This publication contains analysis of PLICS Acute data submissions from NHS providers, including:
- A HTML summary report
- A CSV file containing the aggregate underlying data at national, provider and NHS region levels
- A metadata file describing the construction of each breakdown
Data on total reported cost and total recorded activity is reported by age, gender, deprivation and diagnosis in order to explore the relationship between patient characteristics and cost.
Users should understand that this analysis includes only activity and cost within the scope of the PLICS Acute 2018-19 collection and is not a complete view of costs of acute care in the NHS.
This report does not seek to replace or reproduce analysis in the National Cost Collection (NCC) publication produced by NHS England and NHS Improvement.
