This information is not available in the format requested.

Information concerning the number of finished admission episodes and a rate per 100,000 of the population where the method of admission was an emergency by primary care trust of residence for the years 2008-09 to 2012-13 is attached.

It should be noted that this is not a count of people as the same person may have had more than one admission episode within the same time period.
