Caveat

1. Date range is identified where the arrival date is between 01/11/2018 and 02/01/2019 as recorded in our admin system.

2. Our A&E codes used were:

38DRNK

144A2

37A

144A1

144

3. We have not used Snomed codes as these were implemented after the dates requested.

4. We cannot provide data for 01/11/2013 to 02/01/2014 as this information is only readily available from  01/04/2014 and would require a case note review

Within your Trust, how many alcohol-related A&E admissions (where alcohol is the primary admittance reason) per site between;
a) 1st November 2013 and 2nd January 2014
b) 1st November 2018 and 2nd January 2019
We are unable to complete question 2, as everyone who comes to A&E is an A&E attender, they may be subsequently admitted but are an attender.
