Mental health services currency and payments

Interactive visualisations for currency and payments measures released in the Mental Health Services Monthly Statistics publication.

These visualisations present data for currency and payments measures from the Mental Health Services Monthly Statistics publication. The purpose of this information is to support commissioners and providers using the mental health currencies and payments system.

Under this system, patients are assigned to ‘care clusters’ (these are the ‘currencies’). Each cluster is linked to a care package, which commissioners are paying for.

Data is available from April 2016.

These statistics relate to complete calendar month reporting periods. Although it is possible to select part-month start and end periods in these visualisations, the statistics are not provided at this level of detail.


How to use this tool

Scroll down to the report you need and expand to full screen mode, using the diagonal arrows located at the bottom right of the visualisation.

To exit full screen mode, press Esc on your keyboard or click on the diagonal arrows again.

To filter results, please refer to the instructions within or below each visualisation.

Organisation comparison by month

This visualisation shows how organisations compare against each other at the end of a monthly reporting period by the proportion of people:

  • assigned to an adult mental health care cluster within a cluster review period (ACC37)
  • assigned who are on Care Programme Approach (CPA) (ACC53)
  • in settled accommodation (ACC62)

To use:

  1. Select breakdown by either clinical commissioning group (CCG) or provider, then the reporting month, measure, and care cluster you would like to view. 
  2. Hover your mouse over a visual to see further data displayed in the tooltip.

Organisation comparison by time series

 

This visualisation shows how organisations compare against each other over a reporting period by the proportion of people:

  • assigned to an adult mental health care cluster within a cluster review period (ACC37)
  • assigned who are on Care Programme Approach (CPA) (ACC53)
  • in settled accommodation (ACC62)

To use:

  1. Select breakdown by either clinical commissioning group (CCG) or provider, then the organisation(s), reporting period, measure, and care cluster you would like to view. 
  2. Hover your mouse over a visual to see further data displayed in the tooltip.

Number of people on CPA, assigned to an adult mental health care cluster or in settled accommodation

This visualisation includes data for all remaining currency and payment measures not covered in the visualisations above and shows numbers of people who at the end of a monthly reporting period are: 

  • on Care Programme Approach (CPA) (ACC02)
  • assigned to an adult mental health (MH) care cluster (ACC33)
  • assigned to an adult mental health (MH) care cluster within a cluster review period (ACC36)
  • in settled accommodation (ACC54)

To use:

  1. Select breakdown by either clinical commissioning group (CCG) or provider, then the reporting period, measure, and care cluster you would like to view. 
  2. Hover your mouse over a visual to see further data displayed in the tooltip.

You can also click on an organisation in the table to filter the time series above it.


What the data covers

What you can find out
  • Information about mental health currency and payments for NHS-funded mental health services, according to the data submitted to the MHSDS.
  • Comparisons between providers or Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).
What the report can't tell you
  • Whether variations by provider or CCG area are due to variations in service provision or due to data quality limitations.
  • Whether changes over time are due to changes in service provision or the completeness of the MHSDS data. Any spikes or step changes may be the result of MHSDS data quality issues.

Notes and data sources

To help interpret these visualisations, please refer to the MHSDS specifications and guidance.

Further information about the measures presented is available in the Mental Health Services Monthly Statistics publications.

National guidance on the NHS payment system includes further information about mental health currencies and payments.

 


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.
