To examine whether there are too many hospital beds in London.
Design-Analysis of data from the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry, Mental Health Enquiry, health service indicators, and Emergency Bed Service.
Hospital admission rates for acute plus geriatric services for London residents were very similar to the national values in all age groups.
In the special case considered in the Tomlinson report-acute services in inner London-the admission rate was 22% above the value for England.
However, the admission rate of inner deprived Londoners was 9% below that of comparable areas outside London.
For psychiatry, admission rates in London roughly equalled those in comparable areas.
