FOI REQUEST: NHS England respond to 1st question

Question: Looking at the data breakdown of listed conditions the numbers show how many per the main conditions but other contains numbers well above the average across the board, what is ‘other’?  Is it defined by other conditions aside from those listed or does it cover those with more than one condition?

Response below;

The ‘other’ category covers any pre-existing condition not included in the defined list.

Any patient can have more than one pre-existing condition; all the conditions (listed or ‘other’) that apply for a patient should be recorded.
