The information available, based on information provided by the National Centre for Health Outcomes Development, is set out in a table which I have placed in the Library. Figures are given separately for the age groups 0-15 years and 16 years and above. The table also includes information on the standardised rate of emergency readmissions, defined as the number of emergency readmissions divided by the total number of hospital discharges, adjusted for the different case mix and age and sex of patients to allow a more valid comparison between different years or different provider units.
The information is not available in the format requested. Tables showing counts of finished admission episodes where the method of admission was emergency for episodes with a main consultant speciality of ‘Trauma and Orthopaedics’ separated by primary care trust of residence where the episode ended in months November, December and January from 2004-05 to 2008-09 have been placed in the Library.
