COVID-19 and the production of statistics

Due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) and the need to release capacity across the NHS to support the response, we paused the collection and publication of some of our official statistics.  Initially this applied to the statistics listed in the note below for data due to be submitted between 1 April and 30 June. The list of data collections has now been updated for Quarter 2 2020/21 and the note includes details of which collections will continue to be paused; which have been reinstated having been paused in Quarter 1; and which have been permanently stopped.

The dates on which those statistics would have been released are also shown in the table.  We will keep the list and dates under review as the situation develops.  This decision is informed by the Office for Statistics Regulation’s guidance on changes to statistical outputs during the coronavirus outbreak.
