What do the numbers say about emergency readmissions to hospital?

As part of our work to understand people's experiences of leaving hospital, we have today published a new analysis of NHS emergency readmissions data
What do the numbers say about emergency readmissions to hospital?

Summary

We asked hospital trusts across England for a day-by-day breakdown of their emergency readmissions data for each of the last five years.

This briefing analyses the information we received and highlights how emergency readmissions data can help hospital trusts' boards, managers and clinicians identify risk and learn from occasions when things do go wrong.
