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. This field has been re-coded to remove such data conflicts (the original data equivalent is available as Field 41109).
