Notes

1. ISD(S)1 provides routine quarterly aggregate information for monitoring activity in hospitals, and activity carried out in health centres and clinics in NHSScotland.

2. An available staffed bed is a bed which is resourced for inpatient or day case care.

3. Average Available Staffed Beds reflect the average number available in that specialty and significant facility over the whole year.

4. Numbers are shown rounded to the nearest whole number for ease of interpretation but may in fact be fractions, thus totals may not match for the constituent NHS Boards.

5. Where beds figures are unavailable due to data submission issues, data has been estimated using the last 3 data submissions from the relevant NHS Board. Please note this method is different to the estimation process within the publication. Please note the following caveats on data submission and data estimation:
