There has been continuing growth in care delivered to patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The activity report for financial year 2008-2009 shows that outpatient activity is up 9.6 per cent and in-patient activity up 6.9 per cent.
The proportion of patient episodes now dealt with as day-cases has increased and may soon reach half the number of in-patient episodes.
The average length of stay has reduced, even though around 10 per cent of in-patient episodes are for more than 30 days reflecting the complexity of many of our patients.
