A finished admission episode is the first period of in-patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. Please note that admissions do not represent the number of in-patients, as a person may have more than one admission within the year. 2. The cause code is a supplementary code that indicates the nature of any external cause of injury, poisoning or other adverse effects. 3. The primary diagnosis is the first of up to 14 (seven prior to 2002–03) diagnosis fields in the Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data set and provides the main reason why the patient was in hospital. 4. Figures have not been adjusted for shortfalls in data (i.e. the data are ungrossed). Source: Hospital episode statistics Department of Health.
