The Hospital Estates and Facilities Statistics is the national data warehouse for England extracted from the ERIC (Estates Return Information Collection) return which is collected and published here by the IC on behalf of the Department of Health. It is the main central data collection for estates and facilities services from the NHS containing information dating back to 1999/2000 and will be added to as future returns are completed. The data provided enables the analysis of Estates & Facilities information from NHS Trusts and PCTs in England which is a compulsory requirement that NHS Trusts submit an Estates Return.The data is as provided by NHS organisations and has not been amended. The accuracy and completeness is the responsibility of the Trusts.
You can use this specially designed website to make specific searches on the data return by financial year via the Reports tab. You are able to build and filter your own reports on the following areas:
- Strategic Health Authority
- Trust Type
- Data levels
- Site Type
- Sections within the return
Standard reports providing the full data set, as returned, at Trust and site level can be downloaded in Excel format via the Data Files tab.
This website provides easy access to comprehensive information on the physical quality of the buildings as well as the estates and facilities management services provided.
Details of the data items collected for each year can be found under the downloads section on the right hand side of the page.
This reporting service is designed to offer a standard view of national data. It complements facilities available from commercial organisations who offer more tailored products and services.
