Non-admitted care service events

This section presents an overview of care provided in 2017–18 to non-admitted patients using 2 different sources of non‑admitted patient data:

  • Clinic-level service events data from the NNAPC(agg)D are used to describe overall non-admitted patient care reported in 2017–18.
  • Episode-level data for the 72% of non-admitted patient service events that were also reported for the NNAP(el)D are used to provide more detailed information, including who used these services, how the services were delivered and the type of care provided. The information presented in this report based on the NNAP(el)D may not be representative of the non-admitted patient care activity provided by hospitals (or other services) for which data were not reported to the NNAP(el)D.
