Digging into those numbers about booze and hospital admissions.
And there\’s also one other thing, something I\’ve only just noted. We are being given the absolute number of admissions, not the proportion of admissions. So, has there been any change in the number of admissions over this past decade?
Err, yes, actually, there has. Finished Consultant Episodes (which isn\’t the same thing as admissions but it\’s a reasonable guide to matters) have risen from 12,357,260 in 2002 to 17,269,882 in the most recent year.
They\’re lying to us you know.
