Information relating to the costs of providing, maintaining and servicing the NHS estate has been published by NHS Digital today.

The Estates Return Information Collection, 2020–21 (ERIC) includes national and local level information from all NHS Trusts in England that delivered secondary care and ambulance services between 1st April 2020 and 31st March 2021.

Data was received from 216 trusts including 10 ambulance trusts.

The report includes information at the trust and site level, including those trusts operating under a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) arrangement.

It includes comparisons with the previous year at the national level in key areas such as:

  • Financial information
  • Safety
  • Buildings: quality, function, area and utilisation of space
  • Utilities: energy and water
  • Waste
  • Car parking
  • Inpatient food, laundry and linen, cleaning and portering services

The scope and content of the ERIC collection are reviewed annually to ensure that the information gathered is necessary for, and relevant to, monitoring efficiencies and the funding of the NHS estate.
