It should be noted that the majority of miscarriages occur outside of hospital, in the community, and will not require care through Health and Community Services (HCS) or be reported to the department at the time of occurrence. Additionally, whilst miscarriages that occur in the community may subsequently be recorded in an individual’s medical record, this information is not available in a central database. Therefore, HCS are unable to provide total figures for miscarriages on the island.

HCS holds data on miscarriages that require admission to hospital for care, including ectopic pregnancies requiring management. These cases are identified by the diagnosis codes assigned to the episode of care in the Electronic Patient Record. Admission figures for the years requested are detailed in the table below:


Number of miscarriages


Data Source: Hospital Patient Administration System (TrakCare, Report CDG4G)

Data for this response is derived from reporting by discharge date. As such, patients who were admitted prior to 1 January 2019 but discharged after this date will be included. For the same reason, patients admitted prior to 31 December 2021 but discharged after this date will not be included in the numbers. 

Clinical Coding of a patient’s admission is carried out after discharge from hospital. Data is incomplete for the full time period in question, and consequently, figures may be subject to change as Clinical Coding of admissions continues and completion levels increase.

Figures for termination of pregnancy are published by Public Health Intelligence on
