Information about the absolute and percentage change in the number of accident and emergency attendances at each English acute hospital trust in each of the last five years has been placed in the Library.

This includes data for full year 2011-12, which is the last 12 months for which figures are available.

Patients are not admitted to accident and emergency departments; though they may be admitted to other hospital departments following an attendance at an accident and emergency department. Statistics for admissions to accident and emergency departments are therefore not available.
