patients expected based on the 2013 Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) dataset.The HES dataset is used as a general baseline.

These data refer to submissions to TARN, however the same patient may be submitted more than once if they undergo an

inter-hospital transfer. Reducing the dataset to individual cases results in

4,802

children who met the TARN entry criteria

admitted to hospitals in the area covered by this report.

1,511

children had severe injuries that were assigned an injury severity score (ISS) of more than 15 and

119

injuries.
