This statistical release makes available the most recent data relating to patients with learning disabilities receiving in-patient care commissioned in England. The release comprises:
- This Executive Summary which presents England level analysis of key measures;
- A monthly CSV file which presents key measures at England level;
- A metadata file to accompany the CSV file, which provides contextual information for each measure.
This release also contains a standalone analysis examining the similarities and differences between the Learning Disabilities Census and Assuring Transformation collections. The analysis compared data from the same point in time for both collections (30 September 2014) by linking the respondents using NHS number to determine which patients were returned in each collection.
This is the first release in a series of monthly statistics from a new 'Assuring Transformation' collection by the Health and Social Care Information Centre; these data were previously collected and published by NHS England on a quarterly basis.
