There were 746 finished admission episodes with a primary diagnosis of malnutrition in England in 2014-15. There are no reports from Cumbria in this year and figures at constituency level are not collected centrally. Validated figures are not available for 2015-16.
A finished admission episode (FAE) is the first period of admitted patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. FAEs are counted against the year or month in which the admission episode finishes. Admissions do not represent the number of patients, as a person may have more than one admission within the period.
