General description

Data Prior to January 2013 will not be directly comparable with data for January 2013 onwards due to a change in methodology. See notes in March 2013 release for more details (January 2013).
Please note that this information is provided for contextual purposes only. The figures exclude data from some minor injury units (MIUs) in Wales, and therefore total attendances would be lower than those quoted in statistical releases and other StatsWales datasets.
While there are some small numbers in the data collected and presented, the information is not considered to be sensitive in nature and there is no identifying information presented.
