Estates Returns Information Collection England 2014/15


The Estates Returns Information Collection (ERIC) is a mandatory collection for all NHS Trusts including Ambulance Trusts (who undertake a limited return in recognition of the fact that their services differ from the hospital sector). It collects information relating to the costs of providing and maintaining the NHS Estate including such things as building, maintaining and equipping hospitals, the provision of services such as cleaning, laundry, food and portering and the consumption and associated costs of utilities (e.g. gas, electricity, water).
