  1. Episodes of care data for 2016–17 are not comparable with other years because changes were made to the types of contacts that were counted as an episode of care and to how episodes of care were defined and recorded within some clinical information systems. These led to lower numbers of episodes of care recorded and potential undercounts for some services in 2016–17.

Notes
