This thread is all tangled up.

First off, -name()- specifies a graph name, and contrary to Rich's
suggestion, you should not add ".gph" in the subsequent -graph
combine- call.

Please

1. Ensure that your code is run from one and only one place. Don't mix
do-file and interactive statements, just in case you have been doing
that.

2. Try this (each /// should appear at the end of a line)

local pre graph bar total_episd_amt if LOS>0 & hospital_group=="" ///
& separation_fy=="2010/11", ///
over (COMPTOT, relabel(2 "Complication" 1 "NoComplication"))

local i=1
foreach v of varlist HIP1824Px HIP1836Px HIP1819Px {

 `pre' over(`v', relabel(2 "`v'"  1 "Other admissions")) ///
 title("Mean episode amount overnight stays, public hospitals 2010/11") ///
 subtitle("`v' with/without complications") name(panel`i', replace)

local i=`i'+1
}

graph describe panel1
graph describe panel2
graph describe panel3

graph combine panel1 panel2 panel3
