  • Linked HES/ONS mortality records are currently provided on a provisional basis. An issue has arisen whereby a small number of mortality records may have been incorrectly rejected. The algorithm that links HES to ONS mortality is currently being amended to rectify this issue, which affects approximately 1000 mortality records or about 0.02% of the total.
