Critical care data - Please note this dataset has been suspended by NHS England due to Covid-19

This dataset tracks critical care bed occupancy as of the last Thursday in the reporting month. For each hospital with critical care facilities, the data shows the number of beds available and the number occupied, sub-divided into those providing for adult, paediatric and neonatal care. The overall percentage of occupied beds provides a measure of capacity within the system across the NHS.  The dataset also tracks the number of urgent operations cancelled, including those cancelled for the 2nd or more time throughout the month. Since the onset of Covid-19, a series of additional Covid-specific critical care monitoring datasets have been developed – contact us if you’d like to know more.

This dataset provides information on critical care bed occupancy as of the last Thursday in the reporting month. For each hospital with critical care facilities, the data shows the number of beds available and the number occupied. Critical care beds are sub-divided into those providing for adult, paediatric and neonatal care. The overall percentage of occupied beds provides a measure of capacity within the system across the NHS. The dataset also provides details of the number of urgent operations cancelled, including those cancelled for the 2nd or more time throughout the month.
Data is sourced from NHS England's monthly Critical Care Capacity and Urgent Operations Cancelled dataset, for which detailed notes and the core datasets are available here.
Please note that since the onset of Covid-19, a series of other critical care monitoring datasets have been developed, specific to critical care capacity and Covid-19 patients.  Let us know if you'd like to know more about these.
NHS peer groups are defined using NHS Digital's Peer Finder Tool which identifies each NHS Trust's closest ten peers based on a list of variables such as attendances, deprivation, patient profile and location profile. Further details are available on the NHS Digital website here.
All data used in these visualisations is available in the public domain and reproduced under the relevant Open Government licence.
