To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will rank each English acute hospital trust by the percentage change and number of accident and emergency admissions since 2009-10.

Tables showing the change in accident and emergency admissions between 2009-10 to 2012-13, for each English acute NHS foundation trust and acute NHS trust, sorted by percentage change and change in number, have been placed in the Library. These data reflect organisational changes as well as changes in activity levels and therefore comparison between trusts may not be appropriate. For example, prior to 2013 primary care trusts provided Type 3 accident and emergency services. From April this year, this activity is now undertaken by acute providers in many cases.

These tables do not include data for all accident and emergency departments, only those that belong to an acute NHS foundation trust or an acute NHS trust in England.
