Long-Term Conditions

Long-term condition (LTC) is a very broad term with a range of definitions. Existing routine databases generally give limited information regarding either the duration or severity of individual diseases. As a generic group, LTCs are difficult to measure.

The number of CIS and bed days by NHS Board of Residence and Health and Social Care Partnership, age and gender (including rates per 100,000 population) for financial years 2011/12 to 2015/16 for patients with a main condition of the selected long term conditions of Arthritis, Atrial Fibrillation, Back Problems, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Diabetes, Angina, Heart Failure, COPD or Asthma are available in the tables below.

In the past these tables related to the HEAT target T6 - Hospital admissions and bed days for Long Term Conditions. Although this target has now concluded we continue to publish information for this measure and the final data are presented in the table below.
