Data notes

This dataset provides details of the total number of admissions each month for NHS-funded elective activity, i.e. planned care. The dramatic reduction in March-May 2020 highlights the year on year impact of Covid-19. The dataset is broken down by clinical specialty (Treatment Function Code – TFC) and the analysis also shows 2020 activity as a % of the same period in 2019.
Data is sourced from the admitted pathways subset of NHS England's monthly Consultant-led Referral to Treatment Waiting Times dataset, for which detailed notes and the core datasets are available here.
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.
