|Answer To Question 1:|
The Trust reported 447 beds in the latest national KH03 quarterly submission.
|Question Number 2:|

|Answer To Question 2:|
There were 70,602 emergency and elective inpatient episodes in the last 12 months. This is a count of episodes rather than a count of spells.

|Answer To Question 3:|
There were 35,700 emergency and elective inpatient episodes for patients ages 65 years and over in the last 12 months. This is a count of episodes rather than a count of spells.
|Question Number 4:|
Of the number of emergency and elective ‘inpatient episodes’ belonging to adults aged 65 years or over within the most recently recorded 12 month period, how many of these required a domiciliary social care package to be implemented prior to discharge?
|Answer To Question 4:|
This data is not available from the Warehouse therefore cannot be answered
|Question Number 5:|
The sum of the number of days each inpatient bed was occupied by an adult aged 65 years or over whilst he/she was deemed ‘medically fit for discharge’ but was unable to be discharged due to inadequate social care provision, in the most recently recorded 12 month period.
(Please give data separately for each emergency and elective bed types if readily available, otherwise combined data is acceptable)
|Answer To Question 5:|
The following number of bed days were used by patients ages 65 years and over who had a delayed discharge due to social care provision, over the last 12 months.
Community equipment/adaptions = 68 bed days
Completion of assessment = 908 bed days
Domiciliary package = 1704 bed days
Nursing home = 390 bed days
Public funding = 18 bed days
Residential home = 497 bed days
Total = 3585 bed days
|Question Number 6:|
The average cost of an inpatient bed occupied by an adult aged 65 years or over, per 24 hour period, for each emergency and elective beds (or emergency and elective beds combined if separate data is not readily available)
|Answer To Question 6:|
The average cost of providing a bed for a patient aged over 65 years is £269 per night. The Trust does not hold information splitting this between emergency and elective beds.
