This statistical release makes available the most recent data relating to patients with learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorder receiving inpatient care commissioned in England. The release comprises:

- 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.

- An excel reference data tables showing the last six months of data as reported and total patient counts retrospectively updated


This is the 7th 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.
Data is also released on a quarterly basis and includes sub England geographies and additional measures.

Key Facts

Data collected at the end of August 2015 show that:

• 2,600 patients were in hospital at the end of the reporting period;
• 169 ,  CCGs/Hubs updated information by the end of the reporting period;
• 45 CCGs/Hubs did not update any information or confirm that currently held information was correct by the end of the period.
• 5 CCGs/Hubs have never submitted data as they have not had a patient in scope of this collection since the transfer to HSCIC.


During August 2015 there were:

• 2,545 patients in care from the previous month;
• 60 admissions to hospital;
• 80 discharges/transfers from hospital;
• Less than 5 patients who were admitted and discharged/transferred in the period.


Note: HSCIC undertake data cleansing to remove duplicates from the data. Analysis of the dataset for the production of this report has identified that for March 2015 an additional previously unidentified duplicate was found. This has since been resolved within the CAP system so is no longer found in the retrospectively calculated totals. However, the responses to the questions reported within the March 2015 publication may be affected in some instances. These figures have been retrospectively altered in light of this new information.
