The long-stays dashboard


We have developed a dashboard to help providers, clinical commissioning groups and local authorities to monitor and manage hospital length of stay in acute hospitals.

Nearly 350,000 patients spend more than three weeks in an acute hospital each year. Long-stay patients account for 8% of admissions requiring an overnight stay and have an average length of stay of 40 days. Around one-fifth of beds are occupied by patients who have already been in hospital for more than three weeks. 

Our dashboard will support you to improve patient flow in acute hospitals and effectively manage bed capacity.
