Mr. Burns: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) men and (b) women were treated at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford for alcohol-related (i) injuries and (ii) illnesses in each of the last five years. 
Dawn Primarolo: The only centrally available data on treatment for alcohol-related health problems report on the number of admissions to hospital for alcohol and alcohol-related health problems. An individual may account for more than one admission.
While it is possible to analyse the admissions data to determine the number of individuals admitted to hospital for alcohol and alcohol-related health problems, this could be done only at disproportionate cost.
