Procedures Performed For Children In An Acute Setting For NHS Scotland

$179 / year

This dataset provides information about procedures performed for children in an acute setting across Scotland. It includes admission type, operations group and episodes for operation group information for acute care hospital services.

Complexity

Scotland has some of the best health service data in the world. Few other countries have information which combines high quality data, consistency, national coverage and the ability to link data to allow patient based analysis and follow up. The Information Services Division (ISD) is a division of National Services Scotland, part of National Health Service (NHS) Scotland. ISD provides health information, health intelligence, statistical services and advice that support the NHS in progressing quality improvement in health and care and facilitates robust planning and decision making.

This dataset provides statistics which are derived from data collected on discharges from non-obstetric and non-psychiatric hospitals (SMR01) in Scotland. Only patients treated as inpatients or day cases are included. The specialty of geriatric long stay is excluded. A certain level of underestimation may occur in the results shown for the following reasons. These figures relate to the main procedure only even though up to four procedures may be recorded per hospital episode. All information relates to patients treated as inpatients or day cases only. Information on procedures performed in other settings (e.g. outpatient clinics) is excluded.

Hospital episodes are recorded using the Office for Population Censuses and Surveys Classification of Surgical Operations and Procedures (OPCS). A list of OPCS codes that make up the presented groupings can be found in the ‘Clinical coding’ worksheet. The rates shown are crude rates per 100,000 population and are based on the mid-year population estimates i.e. financial year 2011-2012 will use 2011 mid-year estimate.

Data completeness of SMR01 returns is approximately 97% complete in NHS Scotland for financial year 2015/16. However, completeness varies across health boards. NHS Lothian was 90% complete and NHS Highland was 89% complete for the same time period.
