Emergency readmissions are rising
NHS Digital has published data for emergency readmissions for hospitals in England between 2013/14 and 2017/18.
These figures show that emergency readmissions nationally have increased from 12.5% in 2013/14 to 13.8% in 2017/18. The data also shows that emergency readmissions range from 14.9% in the most deprived areas to 12.7% in the least deprived.
The new data can be found in the CCG outcomes indicator set and the NHS outcomes framework.
