General Ophthalmic Services, Selected Activity Statistics for England - April 2015 to September 2015.
The mid-year selected activity statistics are shown by England, Region, Sub-Region and Area Team. There is a spreadsheet which provides a summary of the activity, "data tables". This includes the previous year's data for ease of comparison. The detail behind the 2015-16 data is contained within the .csv data file, along with a data dictionary file. As usual there is a beginner's guide and a data quality statement. With this publication, we have also attached a short survey as an editable MS Word document.
The survey is with regards to the future of this mid-year ophthalmic activity statistics publication. It is only four questions, which require only a brief response. We would be most grateful if you would please spare a few moments of your time to complete this. The responses will be treated confidentially.
