This dataset comprises a set of analyses concerning the treatment of patients with heart failure by NHS hospitals in England in 2011/12. It has been reproduced from the National Heart Failure Audit 2011/12 Annual Report.

The National Heart Failure Audit monitors the treatment of heart failure patients in England and Wales. It collects data on patients discharged from hospital with a primary diagnosis of heart failure. The audit covers all hospitals in England and Wales which admit acute patients with heart failure – the vast majority of hospitals currently submit data.

Only English data are included in this dataset. Analyses are included for every eligible English hospital which submitted at least 100 patients, or 70% of all of their heart failure patients, to the audit.

The analyses included:

Number of records submitted; % of patients receiving an echocardiogram; % treated on a cardiology ward; % prescribed ACE inhibitor/ARB on discharge; % prescribed beta blocker on discharge; % referred for heart failure nurse led follow-up; % referred for cardiology follow-up.
