The Hospital Estates and Facilities Statistics is the national data warehouse for England and Wales and is extracted from the ERIC (Estates Return Information Collection) return. It is the main central data collection for estates and facilities services from the NHS containing information dating back to 1999/2000 and will be added to as future returns are completed. This website provides, for the first time, easy access to comprehensive information on the physical quality of the buildings as well as the estates and facilities management services provided. You can filter results by: *Year
*Strategic Health Authority
