Mental Health Bulletin

Summary

Interactive visualisations for important measures from the Mental Health Bulletin 2016-17 Annual Report and data coverage by organisation.

The Mental Health Bulletin provides information about people who use NHS-funded secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism services in England.

These statistics are derived from the Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) which reuses operational data produced by NHS and independent providers. The data are known to be incomplete for 2016-17 and are therefore an undercount at England level.

This report presents important measures from the 2016-17 publication alongside provider level data quality information to help users understand the impact of local data quality issues.

Proportion of secondary mental health, learning disability and autism service users admitted as an inpatient

 

Only NHS funded services
Data presented by Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)

Figures for sub-national geographies or individual service providers have been suppressed or rounded to prevent disclosure of information about individuals. Calculated values for these units, such as percentages or rates, have been suppressed if any of the values they have been calculated from have been suppressed, and otherwise rounded to the nearest whole number.

Explanatory notes can be found in Table 1.5 of the Mental Health Bulletin 2016-17 reference tables.

The Care Programme Approach is a package of care for people with mental health problems, which includes being provided with a care-coordinator and a care plan.

Proportion of secondary mental health, learning disability and autism service users on the Care Programme Approach (CPA)

 

Only NHS funded services
Data presented by by Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)

Figures for sub-national geographies or individual service providers have been suppressed or rounded to prevent disclosure of information about individuals. Calculated values for these units, such as percentages or rates, have been suppressed if any of the values they have been calculated from have been suppressed, and otherwise rounded to the nearest whole number.

Data quality - Provider level coverage of key mental health services data tables

 

This visualisation shows the number of records received by NHS Digital in each of the key MHSDS tables used in the Mental Health Bulletin during 2016-17. Please note that there is no direct relationship between the number of records submitted in any one or all of these tables and the measures presented in the bulletin, which are derived from a combination of these items. However, without records in these tables, these statistics cannot be produced.

Data used in this visualisation can be found in the MHSDS Monthly: March 2017 Final Data Quality Report

How to use this tool

This tool is best used by expanding to full screen mode, using the diagonal arrows on the bottom right of the visualisation.

Select an organisation from the list displayed to the left of a visualisation to view corresponding data.  

Hover over a map or chart visualisation to see additional information in the tooltip. Note: Maps are not interactive.

What you can find out

  1. The proportion (as a percentage) of people in the MHSDS who were known to be inpatients.
  2. The proportion (as a percentage) of people in the MHSDS who were known to be on the Care Programme Approach (CPA).
  3. Information about the quality of data in the MHSDS, shown by provider and selected data table.

What the report can't tell you

  1. The total number of people who are inpatients in secondary mental health services or on the CPA, as the data are known to be incomplete.
  2. Whether variations by Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are due to variations in levels of mental illnesses, service provision or data quality limitations.
  3. Provide comparisons to previous years. This report is based only on 2016-17 data, which is the first complete year of data from the MHSDS.

Suppression

All values are rounded to the nearest 5, except values that are 4 or lower (including 0) which are suppressed to prevent the identification of individuals.

Figures produced by aggregation in this report may differ from those published as this report calculates totals as the sum of rounded figures.

Suppressed values appear as blank cells in tables and are not counted in rounded totals.

Percentages are based on pre-suppressed values and rounded to zero decimal places, except where the numerator is 0-4, where the percentage is suppressed.
