How do I see the data?
The SRHAD data is used to populate an annual National Statistics report called Sexual and Reproductive Health Services. The report contains national, local authority and provider level tables.
A series of webinars were run by NHS Digital and Public Health England, in 2018, aimed at SRHAD data providers, covering submission and data reporting. The presentations and a list of questions and answers generated during the sessions is available and a video from one of the sessions will also be available shortly
Background to the collection
The Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Data set (SRHAD) came into effect on 1 April 2010. It consists of anonymised patient-level data submitted on an annual basis. SRHAD replaces the annual, aggregate KT31 return and provides a much richer source of contraceptive and sexual health data for a range of uses from commissioning to national reporting.
The SRHAD data collection has changed from quarterly to annual. The last quarterly return was Q4 2014/15 (1 January 2015 to 31 March 2015).
2016/17 will be the second annual collection (1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017) . Request for this data will be sent out 18 May 2017 with a deadline of 15 June 2017.
Data will be collected using the SDCS data submission system. Guidance documents are available to support the collation of data and to submit the data on SDCS.
The SRHAD data is collected on behalf of Public Health England and complements the GUMCAD2 data collection. Further details can be found on the Public Health England website.
