The MSDS v2.0 is an update to the existing v1.5 data set that introduces a new structure and content, including clinical terminology, in order to meet current clinical practice and incorporate new requirements. The MSDS v2.0 also mandates the submission of all maternity records in scope of the data set, including records that are held on paper which must be submitted in the required electronic format.
The MSDS v2.0 mandates local data collection from 1 April 2019 and national submissions from May 2019, at which point it will replace the existing MSDS v1.5.
The associated ISN and standard documentation can be found on the
