General description

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, daily information on attendances to Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments has been specifically published to support transparency and understanding of NHS activity and capacity. Figures show the number of attendances to A&E by local health board and by date. The data are taken from management information and are subject to change. The latest data have not been subject to the same validation processes undertaken for official statistics releases. The official statistics should continue to be considered the authoritative source of data.

Data collection and calculation

Daily return from NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS) at a hospital level and local health board (LHB) level. Data is submitted via an EXCEL file and transferred to a SQL database. As the return is sourced from management information, hospital level data are decided to not be suitable for publication. Please see Weblinks for the official statistics on A&E attendances.

Frequency of publication

Weekly

Data reference periods

February 2020 onwards

Revisions information

Historic data are subject to revision and therefore may differ to previously published information. The data are validated mid-month for the previous month, so figures are likely to differ after the validation process.

Statistical quality

Figures include A&E attendances to major and minor hospitals, from all mode of transports across Wales. Some of the small minor A&E units are not able to submit daily data, therefore there is probably a small undercount in total attendance. Please see Weblinks for the official statistical release.
