Due to COVID-19 and the need to release capacity across the National Health Service to support the response, NHS England and NHS Improvement have suspended the collection and publication of some of the official statistics. This includes data for Delayed Discharge of Care, which has not been collected since February 2020.

Data for February 2020 is provided in the attached table.
