Summary

This is a report on NHS-funded Community Services for children and young people aged 18 years or under using data from the new Children and Young People's Health Services (CYPHS) data set reported in England for activity for August and September 2017.

The CYPHS is a patient-level dataset providing information relating to NHS-funded community services for children and young people aged 18 years or under. These services can include health centres, schools and mental health trusts. The data collected includes personal and demographic information, diagnoses including long-term conditions and childhood disabilities and care events plus screening activities.

It has been developed as part of the Maternity and Children's Data Set (MCDS) Project to achieve better outcomes of care for children and young people. It provides data that will be used to improve clinical quality and service efficiency, in a way that improves health and reduces inequalities.

These statistics are classified as experimental and should be used with caution. Experimental statistics are new official statistics undergoing evaluation. They are published in order to involve users and stakeholders in their development and as a means to build in quality at an early stage. More information about experimental statistics can be found on the UK Statistics Authority website.

Please note that while submitters are usually given two separate opportunities to submit any given reporting period of CYPHS data during a primary submission window and a refresh submission window, September 2017 data were only submitted during one primary window and hence comparisons with other reporting periods should be made with caution.

This month's statistical release also includes a separate quarterly analysis focusing on 6-8 week breastfeeding status and 24, 27 and 30 month Ages and Stages (ASQ-3) scoring, July - September 2017.

Please note from October 2017, the CYPHS data set is being renamed the Community Services Data Set (CSDS). The CSDS will supersede the CYPHS data set to allow adult community data to be submitted. The CSDS will expand the scope of the existing data set by removing the 0-19 age restriction. The structure and content of the CSDS remains the same as the existing CYPHS data set. Further information about the CSDS is available from https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/data-collections-and-data-sets/data-sets/community-services-data-set
