Thank you for your enquiry.

We are responsible for the production of mortality statistics for England and Wales. Unfortunately, we do not have access to hospital bed capacity, or the number of beds occupied.

Therefore, we do not hold the data you have requested.

NHS Digital may be better placed to answer your query. They can be contacted via email at, and by telephone at 0300 303 5678.
