Quarterly Hospital Activity Data

Quarterly activity data relating to inpatients (elective) and outpatients. All data items relate to all specialties. Figures are submitted quarterly on the Quarterly Activity Return (QAR) by NHS Trusts and Independent sector providers treating NHS patients.

Guidance, press notice and further information is available here.

The inpatient and outpatient data is available combined in one file from Q1 2011-12 onwards.

Referrals and attendances for outpatient appointments prior to 2007-08 and Elective admission events prior to 2004-05 can be found here.

Time Series

Download – Quarterly Hospital Activity Time-series (XLS, 38KB)
Please note the time-series file above was updated on 13 June 2019 after publication day (31 May 2019) due to a couple of small errors being spotted. Firstly, some Other Referral figures for Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust (REF) were misattributed to three old CCGs and the reallocation to the three new CCGs does not affect the national total. Secondly, The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust (RET) figures for Inpatients were not fully incorporated affecting their respective CCGs and the national total.

Please note: Up to and including Q4 2017-18, provider based data included non-English commissioned activity and excluded non-English providers and IS1 (independent sector unspecified). From Q1 2018-19 onwards, provider data excludes non-English commissioned activity and includes all providers who have submitted data. Thus provider and commissioner time-series are the same from Q1 2018-19 onwards and therefore this provider time-series is no longer updated.
