This report presents the results from the Hospital Based Complex Clinical Care (HBCCC) & Long Stay Census, which was carried out by the Scottish Government and NHS Boards as at 23:59, 28 March 2019. The data was collected as part of the Inpatient Census. Data is presented for all HBCCC and Long Stay patients from all three parts of the Census. This includes patients within NHS Scotland facilities (e.g. acute general hospitals, community hospitals, psychiatric hospitals) as well as those patients funded by NHS Scotland but treated in non-NHS Scotland facilities (e.g. NHS England hospitals).
