Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many hospital admissions there have been for alcohol-related conditions for (a) males and (b) females aged (i) under 10, (ii) 10 to 13, (iii) 14 to 17 and (iv) 18 or more years old in (A) each region and (B) each primary care trust in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement. (281300)

The information requested has been placed in the Library. However, it should be noted that to protect patient confidentiality it is not possible to provide primary care trust (PCT) level data for the age groups under 10, 10 to 13 and 14 to 17-years-old. Therefore, data have been provided for under 18 years old and over 18 years old, additionally for some PCTs it has been necessary to combine these two age groups to protect patient confidentiality.
