71 6.3 Hospital admissions 2008/2009 hospital admissions data are the latest available. These show that the rate of opioid-related admission to NT hospitals in 2008/09 increased to 149.5 per million persons (Figure 44). There has been a gradual upward trend in opioid-related admissions since 2006/07; however, the NT pattern remains consistently lower than the national rate. Figure 44: Opioid-related admissions to NT hospitals by financial year, rate per million persons, 1993/94-2008/09 Source: AIHW. The rate of amphetamine-related admissions to NT hospitals increased from 7.4 per million persons in 2007/08 to 71.9 per million persons in 2008/09 (Figure 45). The 2008/09 NT increase is inconsistent with the decreased national rate of amphetamine-related admissions.
