Bed availability and occupancy is managed at a local level. Hospitals have a responsibility in ensuring that they are operating with the necessary beds available to support effective patient flow and safety.

NHS England publishes quarterly information on the numbers of available and occupied beds open overnight or day only in all National Health Service organisations, most recently for quarter 3 of 2017-18. This data is available at:
