NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care (CHC) Quarterly Return

Data Provision Notice to require the submission of data by CCGs in relation to NHS Continuing Health Care (CHC) activity.

This Data Provision Notice sets out a requirement for data to be submitted by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to NHS Digital.

In accordance with the Health and Care Act 2022, as of 1 July 2022, CCGs are abolished and their statutory obligations will be managed by Integrated Care Boards. These obligations include the continuing requirement to submit data to NHS Digital as set out in this Data Provision Notice.


Overview

The information on the CHC collection also links into hospital discharge work. The collection includes a metric on percentage of assessments carried out in an acute hospital setting, and links into a quality premium to reduce acute assessments in order to support effective hospital discharge and assessment in the right time and right place.

The collection also provides data required for assessing Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) performance against a second quality premium on the number of cases with a decision by the CCG within 28 days from receipt of the checklist (or other notification of potential eligibility).
