CAPIC ANALYSIS: HOSPITAL IN-PATIENT DATA – PATIENT EPISODE DATABASE FOR WALES (PEDW)

Countries Covered: Wales
Date: 1993-2003

CAPIC has analyzed data from the Patient Episode Database for Wales (PEDW) held at NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS).  Records in PEDW are based on episodes of care under a particular consultant, called Finished Consultant Episodes. These need to be linked together to carry out analyses of the number of people admitted/discharged from hospital, how many had particular treatments, and whether they died in hospital.  These analysis were performed for years ranging from 1993 to 2003.

CRIME REDUCTION STRATEGY

Countries Covered: UK
Date: 
1999

Safe and healthy communities need a strong, shared respect for the proper boundaries of the law and collective condemnation for all those who break them.  Reducing crime and the fear of crime enhances liberty and revitalises communities. The fight against crime is an integral part of the Government’s commitment to make Britain a better place to live.  This is an ambitious programme of work which will – if achieved – represent an unprecedented reduction in levels of recorded crime against the predicted scale.
