A table showing a count of unplanned accident and emergency attendances resulting in an admission and a primary diagnosis of respiratory condition, tabulated by month and age category for the financial years between 2010-11 and 2016-17 is attached.

This is a count of hospital attendances resulting in admissions, not individual patients as the same person may have been admitted into a National Health Service hospital on more than one occasion.
