HC Deb 15 January 1998 vol 304 c286W
Dr. Lynne Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what has been the average length of in-patient stay in each hospital trust in each of the last five years; how many patients treated as in-patients were re-admitted to each hospital trust within six months; and what proportion of the total number of patients so treated this represents. [19802]

Mr. Boateng

Information on average length of stay for each National Health Service trust for the years 1991–92 to 1995–96 has been placed in the Library. Information on six-month readmission rates for individual trusts is not collected centrally, but my noble Friend, the Baroness Jay, will write to my hon. Friend with the information that is available.
