The information requested is attached. It provides a count of the number of finished admission episodes with a primary diagnosis of T36-T50 for male and female adults and children for the year 2013-14. Explanatory footnotes have also been provided.

It should be noted that this is not a count of patients as the same patient may have been admitted more than once in a year.
