These data contain statistics derived from General Acute Inpatient / Day cases Records (Scottish Morbidity Records 01 or SMR01 database), which includes all inpatient and day cases discharged from acute medical specialties (all specialties other than mental health, maternity, neonatal and geriatric long stay specialties).
Data are provided on hospital stays for Scotland for financial years 1981/82 to 2016/17, and by geography (NHS Board and local authority) for financial years 1997/98 to 2016/17.
