Mandatory Requests from NHS Improvement
Section 255 of the Health and Social Care Act enables Monitor (now part of NHS Improvement) to make a request to NHS Digital on matters concerning the provision of health care or adult social care. NHS Improvement can request that NHS Digital puts in place systems to collect and analyse care. This is known as a mandatory request as NHS Digital must comply unless we consider the request relates to information that is proscribed in regulations. No such regulations have been made as yet.
