There have been some changes in data recording for short-stay ED cases in Christchurch since Dec 2020 when they moved to the new hospital. This has reduced the number of inpatient records for services where the patients come into hospital via the ED. Instead of being reported to NMDS these events are now included in NNPAC data only.
