Neurology: Out of Area Treatment

Volume 465: debated on Thursday 25 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many persons resident in Wales were treated as (a) in-patients and (b) out-patients at the Walton Centre, Fazakerley, Liverpool in each of the last three years for which figures are available. (159466)

The information requested has been set out in the following tables.

Count of finished consultant episodes (FCE) at the Walton Centre for neurology and neurosurgery NHS trust where the patient was resident in Wales

FCE

2005-06

1,025

2004-05

870

2003-04

875

Notes:

A FCE is defined as a period of admitted patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. Please note that the figures do not represent the number of patients, as a person may have one episode of care within the year.

In-patients are defined as patients who are admitted to hospital and occupy a bed, including both admissions where an overnight stay is planned and day cases.

Figures have not been adjusted for shortfalls in data—i.e. the data are ungrossed.

Attendance type identifies if the attendance occurred and if it was a first, subsequent, cancelled or did not attend. 99.9 per cent. of this field is complete.
