Interactive visualisations for data quality measures released in the Mental Health Services Monthly Statistics publication.
These data are from the Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS), which reuses operational data produced by NHS and independent providers. The MHSDS data are known to be incomplete and are therefore an undercount at England level.
This report presents information about the quality of data and statistics published each month. This includes provider-level data quality information to help users understand the impact of local data quality issues. The purpose of this report is to support data quality improvement by making this information available in an accessible and interactive format.
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.

Providers submitting data to the Mental Health Services Data Set
This visualisation shows the number of providers that submitted data to the MHSDS each month over a selected reporting period, and the total number of records submitted by them.
All providers of NHS funded specialist secondary mental health and learning disability services should submit data to the MHSDS. NHS Digital is working with partners to identify non-submitting organisations and improve compliance. MHSDS submission reports show those providers providing a submission compared to those NHS Digital consider to be in scope for the collection.
