Update (02 November 2015) Data Quality Note. An error was identified and corrected in tables 'Organisations with data extracted on 20 June 2014' and 'Organisations with shortfalls / missing data' of the annual Data Quality Note, where providers who had corrected their shortfalls since the provisional HES publication had not been updated. This was not an error in the data, only in the data quality note.
Update (01 July 2015) the Provider-level analysis file has been updated to include a small amount of data missing in error from the sheet named 'Table B_1314' B only. This had no impact on the front 'output' sheet.
Update (26 March 2015) Provider Level Analysis released.
Update: (25 February 2015) the summary report containing headline figures has been replaced by detailed analysis and additional Excel files have been released.
