Compendium - Emergency readmissions to hospital within 30 days of discharge

Experimental statistics, Open data

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 2020/21.

The ongoing review by NHS Digital of emergency readmissions indicators across Compendium, CCGOIS and NHS OF has been paused due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) disruption and re-prioritisation of work across NHS Digital.

There are 4 datasets that include breakdowns by the following geographies: region, Office for National Statistics (ONS) area classification (2011 census v2 revised), NHS England regions, local authority of residence, NHS and private hospital providers, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) and Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STP).
