Relevance

Key uses of delayed discharge information include monitoring policy obligations both locally and nationally, helping to troubleshoot in partnership areas with specific problems, facilitating benchmarking with other areas, identifying the potential release of resources to focus on more appropriate care and providing useful dialogue between health and social care agencies. Delayed discharge information is also used to respond to information requests (including FOI requests) from a variety of customers and parliamentary questions.

Timeliness and Punctuality

Data are available for publication within six to eight weeks of the census month.

Revisions

NHS Lothian, ISD have revised figures for the period Sep 2017 to Jan 2018. NHS Lothian identified that a change in their computer system had introduced an error in reporting some records for the months Sep 2017 to Jan 2018. This has resulted in an average increase for NHS Lothian of 1,123 delayed bed days and 24 census delays per month over this period. Figures for Feb 2018 onwards are unaffected. Delays reported in NHS Lothian hospitals include residents of local authorities within and out with the health board area.

NHS Ayrshire & Arran identified that a change in their computer system introduced an error in reporting some records for August 2018. ISD have revised census and bed day figures for August 2018, and as a result of the corrections, the census figure has reduced by 17, and the bed days figure has reduced by 241.
