Information on the number of high dependency beds was not collected before March 1999.
The bi-annual adult critical care provision census collects the number of high dependency and adult intensive care beds started in March 1999 with the latest census in July 2007. Tables have been placed in the Library which give the number of critical care beds broken down by the relevant national health service regional structure.
The KH03 collects the total number of days for all types of intensive care beds,(including paediatric and neonatal). Those data are available back to 1995. This information has also been provided.
