Data Insights: Informing better use of Welsh hospital admissions data in the SAIL Databank (January 2022)
This Data Insight from ADR Wales reviewed the clinical coding completeness and lag in the Patient Episode Database for Wales (PEDW).

Therefore caution must be exercised when using recent extracts of the dataset for analysis.
