Female Genital Mutilation Enhanced Dataset
NHS Digital collects data on FGM within the NHS in England on behalf of the Department of Health (DH).
The data collected is used to produce information that helps to:
- improve how the NHS supports women and girls who have had or who are at risk of FGM
- plan the local NHS services needed both now and in the future
- help other organisations e.g. local authorities to develop plans to stop FGM happening in local communities
Data is collected from NHS acute trusts, mental health trusts and GP practices and reports are published as an official statistic every quarter.
The Female Genital Mutilation Enhanced Dataset Standard (SCCI2026) includes more information about wider data standards and how to record information about FGM, and the full specification and guidance documentation.
