This information is not collected.

While the Hospital Episode Statistics accident and emergency (A&E) data set does contain information about the diagnosis of patients attending A&E, it is not possible to identify the conditions requested as the diagnosis system in place is not detailed enough to classify these conditions.

Table 14 in the Health and Social Care Information Centre’s (HSCIC’s) annual publication demonstrates the diagnosis groupings published. Data for 2013/14 can be found at:
