All forthcoming outputs will be published at 09:30am unless otherwise stated.
As of 31 January 2023 PHS will be publishing A&E data in a new format and will also be including monthly demographic data and data on patterns of attendance, previously published annually. Additional information on Source of Referral/Discharge Destination, and Multiple attendances will be added to the new web pages late February/early March. The new format of publishing data will initially run in parallel with ongoing weekly/monthly publications. The parallel running of both formats will be phased with the intention to switch to the new format in April/May this year. Should you have any feedback or enquiries relating to this new format of publication, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the feedback form in the new web pages.
