Dear Sirs 

Request for assessment of NHS England A&E statistics 

Thank you for your letter of 25 July requesting an assessment of NHS England’s Accident and Emergency (A&E) statistics. 

As you say, this topic is of high public interest across the UK. I therefore welcome your endeavours to seek feedback on these statistics and to publicly demonstrate your compliance with the Code of Practice for Statistics. I am pleased to confirm that my team has initiated an assessment and I look forward to engaging with you on the findings in due course. 

Yours sincerely  


Ed Humpherson
Director General for Regulation
