The information requested has been placed in the Library.

We have provided the mean and median length of stay for records with a primary and secondary diagnosis of a neurological condition, ICD10 codes G00-G99 by primary care trust of treatment for the years 2007-08 to 2011-12. We are unable to provide the information by clinical commissioning group area.

It should be noted that some of these values are based on relatively small numbers of records, so are affected by one or a few large values.

We have excluded averages derived from groups with five or fewer records.
