A&E Attendances and Emergency Admissions

The Weekly and Monthly A&E Attendances and Emergency Admissions collection collects the total number of attendances in the specified period for all A&E types, including Minor Injury Units and Walk-in Centres, and of these, the number discharged, admitted or transferred within four hours of arrival.

Also included are the number of Emergency Admissions, and any waits of over four hours for admission following decision to admit.

Data are shown at provider organisation level, from NHS Trusts, NHS Foundation Trusts and Independent Sector Organisations.

Data on A&E attendances and emergency admissions were published weekly from November 2010 to June 2015 and monthly from June 2015. The switch to a monthly rather than weekly collection was a response to recommendations from Sir Bruce Keogh’s review of waiting time standards. Further information on the review and next steps can be found under letters on our publications page.

The publication dates for future monthly statistics can be found on our 12 month calendar here.

In addition, the Health and Social Care Information Centre publish more detailed data on A&E attendances that is broken down by age and diagnosis. This includes monthly A&E Quality Indicators and an annual publication.
