Data suppressed or not available

For certain metrics dealing with staff or patient case numbers we suppress values below 7, to ensure individual staff members and patients can't be identified.

Where low values have been suppressed, you'll see an asterisk (*) instead of the trust value for that metric.

For other metrics, you may see a 'Data not available' message. This can be for a number of reasons, including:
  • data not submitted
  • sensitive data, subject to a sharing restriction
  • needing further data cleansing before it can be published

Also see 'Data not available' for community and mental health service metrics.
