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 Annex A, for data due to be submitted between 1 April and 30 June. This was subsequently extended to apply to data due to be submitted between 1 July and 30 September.

The list of data collections that have been paused has now been updated for Quarter 3 and 4 2020/21. The table below outlines which collections will continue to be paused. 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 ahead of 2021/22 Q1 to establish if further collections should be reinstated or paused.

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.
