Information relating to accident and emergency (A&E) admissions, transfers and discharge in Essex and the East of England is not available in the format requested. NHS England collects and publishes performance data against the four-hour A&E standard at both a trust and a national level. The data is not available by the requested geographical areas.

Data for England is available at the following link. It should be noted that the data in 2010/11 was collected from November 2010 onwards and as such, only shows a partial year:
