Source data

The hospital activity data included in this dashboard are sourced from routinely collected national datasets.

  • SMR01 (Scottish Morbidity Records 01) is the source for general acute inpatient and day case hospital activity for specialties other than mental health, maternity, neonatal and geriatric long-stay.
  • SMR04 (Scottish Morbidity Records 04) is the source for psychiatric inpatient and day case hospital activity.

Analysis combining SMR01 and SMR04 activity is presented for mental and behavioural conditions associated with the use of alcohol to enable a better estimate of the total hospital activity.
