Maternity Services Data Set (MSDS): Mental Health Prediction Detection Indicator Status, financial years 2015- 2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020 (April, May, June).
This is a report detailing the MHPredictionDetectionIndMother field and whether or not the recommended questions for prediction and detection of mental health issues were asked at the antenatal booking appointment in the five financial years stated.
These figures are based on experimental data, and should be used with caution.
As the statistics suggest, data quality improved over the five years in question; changes in the numbers may therefore be the result of improved recording than changes in actual diagnoses.
