To provide more timely statistics in the Mental Health Services Monthly Statistics publication series, from October 2023 activity, revised submission windows will be introduced to support a move to reporting performance data in the month following activity. Editions of the series from the December 2023 publication onwards will be affected by this change, however this edition of the series is unaffected.
In our December publication we will be publishing the following:
- AT November '23 data
- MHSDS LDA Sept '23 data with restrictive interventions data tables included but no comparators file
- MHSDS LDA Oct '23 data with no restrictive interventions data tables included but will include the comparators file using Oct '23 MHSDS data and latest cut of AT Oct '23 data
For October 2023, this publication will not contain restraints data as the restraints data is being published in the second month following the activity. Therefore the October 2023 publication will have the restraints data added to it on January 18th 2024. On this day we will also publish November 2023 data, again omitting the restraints data initially with it being added in February 2024.
