1.All diagnoses count of episodesthese figures represent a count of all finished consultant episodes (FCEs) where the diagnosis was mentioned in any of the 14 (seven prior to 200203) diagnosis fields in a hospital episode statistics (HES) record.
2.The primary diagnosis is the first of up to 14 (seven prior to 200203) diagnosis fields in the HES data set and provides the main reason why the patient was in hospital.
3.As well as the primary diagnosis, there are up to 13 (six prior to 200203) secondary diagnosis fields in HES that show other diagnoses relevant to the episode of care.
4.A FCE is defined as a period of admitted patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. Please note that the figures do not represent the number of patients, as a person may have more than one episode of care within the year.
5.Figures are grossed for both coverage and missing/invalid clinical data, except for 200304, which are not yet adjusted for shortfalls.
