NHS Digital’s Hospital Episode Statistics show that between the financial years 2013-14 and 2016-17, there was an increase in emergency finished admission episodes at the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust for patients aged 65 and over of 1,914 (an increase of 9.9%). This is a count of admissions, not patients, as the same person may have more than one admission within the time period.
