The population denominators were based on Office for National Statistics mid-year population estimate.Results: The annual PC burns attendance was 16.1/10 000 persons at risk (95{\%} CI 15.6-16.6); EAs were 35.1/10 000 persons at risk (95{\%} CI 34.7-35.5) in England and 28.9 (95{\%} CI 27.5-30.3) in Wales. HA ranged from 6.0/10 000 person at risk (95{\%} CI 5.9-6.2) in England, to 3.1 in Wales and Scotland (95{\%} CI 2.7-3.8 and 2.7-3.5 respectively) and 2.8 (95{\%} CI 2.4-3.4) in NI. In England, Wales and Scotland, 75{\%} of HA were aged <5 years. Mortality was low with 0.1/1 000 000 persons at risk (95{\%} CI 0.06-0.2).
