In the period between 1 April 2012 and 31 March 2013, English NHS hospitals received nearly 5.3 million emergency admissions. A small number, fewer than 2 per cent of these (80,284), were excluded from the study due to invalid age or gender codes, or were for people resident outside England.

Of the remaining admissions, 1,044,407 (20.1%) were recorded as falling within one of the 27 conditions defined as ACS. The mean age of patients admitted as an emergency with an ACS condition was 55 years; 52 per cent were female. The number and rates of potentially avoidable emergency admission differed notably by age and gender.

The differences in rates of emergency admissions between age groups demonstrate the importance of standardising for age when comparing rates between areas. If an area has an unusually high proportion of older people,we would expect its rate of potentially avoidable admissions to be higher. Standardisation is required also when comparing rates of emergency admissions over time, as the population of England continues to get older. The age-standardised rate of admission for ACS conditions in 2012/13 was 1,613 per 100,000 people.
