MINAP Public Report includes information on management of heart attack (acute myocardial infarction) in England, Wales and parts of Northern Ireland. This includes patients with STEMI and nSTEMI who are admitted to hospital.
The datasets below contain analyses from the MINAP Public Report pertaining to England only and covering the period between 1 April 2012 and 31 March 2013.
Data and analyses regarding the following aspects of care are available at the national (aggregate) and hospital level:
Secondary prevention medication at discharge
Care of patients with nSTEMI
These analyses do not include any data about individual patients, nor do they contain any patient identifiable data.
In practice MINAP records the great majority of patients having STEMI in England and Wales. However it is recognised that a small minority of hospitals do not enter all their nSTEMI patients, mainly due to lack of resources, although in recent years there has been an improvement in this area. The true number of heart attacks is difficult to establish, as it is not possible directly to compare MINAP data with Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) in England and Patient Episode Database for Wales (PEDW), the only possible comparators, except in aggregate.
