Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) submission update

The Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) applies to all service providers and organisations that provide specialist secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism spectrum disorder services. This report shows those providers providing a submission compared to those NHS Digital currently consider to be in scope for the collection.

The providers considered in scope for the MHSDS have been determined through intelligence gathered from other national datasets and from information provided by national and local stakeholders. This list is subject to revision based on new intelligence received. If you have any information about which providers should be in scope for this collection please email this to NHS Digital.

All providers of NHS funded specialist mental health and learning disability services should submit the MHSDS. However, at present only a small number of independent sector providers are making submissions and this has an impact on the completeness, particularly in areas such as inpatient care and forensic services, where the independent sector provides much of the NHS funded care. When an organisation starts or ceases to submit data this can affect overall record numbers.

We have updated the format of the submission reports from the April 2020 reporting period onwards to include additional information on use of the Multiple Submission Window Model.
