Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES) is a data warehouse containing records of all patients admitted to NHS hospitals in England. It contains details of inpatient care, outpatient appointments and A&E attendance records.
Hospital episode statistics (HES) statistics are produced and published on a monthly basis. This data is provisional and should therefore be treated as an estimate until the final National Statistics annual publications.
Changes will be made to this publication from March 2016 onwards. For more details please see the "Related Links" section at the bottom of this page.
Please Note:Finalised 2014-15 HES A&E data was published on 28th Jan 2016, but this provisional monthly publication, released on the 24th Feb 2016, referenced provisional 2014-15 A&E HES data. The issue was corrected for subsequent monthly publications, which supersede this publication.
