Users of these data should note the following: on Friday 16th September 2016, the CCG-level data for 2015-16 were refreshed to take account of any amendments made by CCGs as part of their submission of NHS CHC activity data for 2016-17 Quarter 1. This refresh has resulted in slight changes to the data in the Excel workbook and the .csv files. The data included in the Excel workbook and the .csv file therefore do not sum to the England-level totals reported in the .pdf report, which is based on the data available as at the end of the reporting period.
