Providers of publicly-funded community services are legally mandated to collect and submit community health data, as set out by the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
The Community Services Data Set (CSDS) expands the scope of the Children and Young People's Health Services Data Set (CYPHS) data set, by removing the 0-18 age restriction. The CSDS supersedes the CYPHS data set, to allow adult community data to be submitted.
The structure and content of the CSDS remains the same as the CYPHS data set. The Community Information Data Set (CIDS) has been retired, to remove the need for a separate local collection and reduce burden on providers.
Reports from the CSDS are available to download from the Community Services Data Set reports webpage.
