Community Services Data Set
As a secondary uses data set Community Services Data Set (CSDS) re-uses clinical and operational data for purposes other than direct patient care. It defines the data items, definitions and associated value sets extracted or derived from local information systems and sent to NHS Digital for analysis purposes.
Derived CCG fields and new ICB and sub-ICB location fields
Due to recent errors in the NHS Postcode Directory data, published by ONS, which is used for NHS Digital data derivation, we would like to inform you that the derived CCG fields should not be used, and the new derived ICB and sub-ICB location fields are not yet available. The new post-deadline extracts and commissioning extracts will be re-issued once the error is corrected.
Notification of forthcoming update to the CSDS Technical Output Specification (ETOS) and Post Deadline Extract Schema
We are expecting to publish an updated version of the CSDS ETOS, to account for some new derivations to reflect that Integrated Care Boards (ICB’s) have taken over all current commissioning responsibilities from CCGs from 1 July 2022, as set out in the Health and Care Act 2022.
