Bed availability and occupancy

The responsibility for publishing these statistics has transferred to the NHS Commissioning Board. From the 1st April 2013 these statistics will be found here:

The KH03 is a quarterly collection from all NHS organisations that operate beds, open overnight or day only, both NHS Trusts and PCTs.  It collects the total number of available bed days and the total number of occupied bed days by consultant main specialty.  Prior to 2010-11 the KH03 was an annual return collecting beds by ward classification.  It also included data on Residential Care beds.
