information from the author,
You may be interested in the attached paper I wrote with a colleague that has been published by Rospa .
We used Hospital Episode data (HES) which collects the stats of road users admitted to hospital . So they have not just been treated at A and E but their injuries required a stay in a hospital bed . That separates out the more seriously injured. We did not analyse further average stays although this could be done. The HES stats are more helpful than STATS 19 which are the more usual stats quoted by government as these stats only cover accidents reported to the police. Non-collision cycling incidents (10737 admissions in 2016/17) are probably rarely reported to the police but form the highest number by category of cyclists admitted to hospital.
The headline numbers for hospital admissions in 2016/17 were
Car occupants 14664
Which supports the classification of cyclists as 'vulnerable road users' by the DoT
Data on average length of stay, suggests cyclists have a shorter stay due to falls than when bicycle/motor vehicles collisions are involved.
