Notes:

A FAE is the first period of admitted patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. FAEs are counted against the year 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.

In order to protect patient confidentiality '*' appears in the table for all sub-national breakdowns, where it is possible to calculate a value between one and seven from the data presented. All other sub-national data has been rounded to the nearest five.
