This field indicates (for each participant) the number of in-patient Health Episode Statistics (HES) records in the UKB repository which contain "Patient classification on admission" information. Participants with zero records are not itemised.
Patient classification on admission identifies the type of patient, e.g. whether they are a regular attender or a maternity admission, etc.
In order to conduct analyses using this information, researchers must include this data-field in their application, however access will be given in-situ rather than as a download.
Note that the original information was obtained from a variety of external sources, some of which used overlapping and contradictory coding schemes. The values in this field can therefore only be interpreted when the source of each item is known (see Field 41252) using the source-specific codings Data-Coding 208, Data-Coding 245, Data-Coding 246 and Data-Coding 254. It is recommended that the re-coded Field 41240 is used instead of this one.
