The report is part of an analysis of information from hospitals in England, which has been commissioned by the NHS.

It analysed 8,720 admissions to hospital for anxiety, and 4,840 for stress, between December 2012 and November 2013.

Women were likelier than men to be admitted to hospital for anxiety, the study found, making up three out of every five admissions.
