Quick guide to submitting Children and Young People with Eating Disorders (CYP ED) Waiting Times
This guide was updated in March 2022 to reflect Version 5.0 of the dataset. Author: MHSDS Data Quality.
NHS Digital is working to establish MHSDS as the only collection method for mental health services data. Children and Young People with Eating Disorders – Waiting Times data is currently submitted to both the Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS) and the Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS).
The measures are 'Waiting times for incomplete pathways for an Eating Disorder' and 'Waiting times for patients started treatment for an Eating Disorder', split by Urgent and Routine cases. The IDs of the relevant measures calculated from MHSDS are ED85 to ED90.
Qualifier values in SNOMED can be used to record when a person has been offered but declined a treatment. Treatments declined will not count towards these measures. The MHSDS User Guidance provides more information on using qualifier values.
* 984421000000104 |Focal psychodynamic therapy (regime/therapy)| has been made inactive and replaced by 718023002 |Focal psychodynamic therapy (regime/therapy)| in the SNOMED terminology. Both concepts are acceptable but providers should aim to use active SNOMED content where possible.
