Indirectly age and sex standardised ratio of emergency readmissions with a primary diagnosis or an external cause code of an alcohol-specific condition within 30 days of a previous discharge following an alcohol-specific admission, with 95% confidence intervals (CI).

As of the March 2020 release, the July 2016 to June 2019 (Provisional) data 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 this reporting period also differs from that originally published in September 2019 in that the HES database is routinely updated (overwritten) on a monthly basis for the year in progress. Data presented for July 2016 to June 2019 remains provisional, but is now more complete than it was when the September 2019 publication was released. This effect cannot be readily separated from the effect of the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (RXC) resubmission which took place after processing for the September 2019 publication.
