Information on (a) the rates of admission to hospital, (b) the total hospital bed-days per population and (c) the rates of admission to hospital from a nursing home or residential care home for patients with a secondary diagnosis of dementia who are aged (i) over 65 and (ii) over 75 for each clinical commissioning group (CCG) in England for the each month in the past five years could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.

We have provided data attached which shows patients with a secondary diagnosis of dementia by CCG of residence for individuals aged (i) over 65 and (ii) over 75, for 2013-14 showing:

(a) the rates of admission to hospital per age group population,

(b) the total hospital bed-days per age group population and

(c) the rates of admission to hospital from a nursing home or residential care home per age group population.

Please be aware that the 2013-14 data supplied by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) in November 2014 was provisional at the time. HSCIC have since published the 2013-14 data. Further information can found through this link:

Note that some patients who live in nursing homes or residential care may have their source of admission recorded as 'usual place of residence' by the hospital staff but we cannot identify these.
