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:

  • Report 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
  • Excel reference data tables showing the data since March 2015 as reported and total patient counts retrospectively updated

This is the latest 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 February 2016 show that:

  • 2,570 patients were in hospital at the end of the reporting period
  • 207 CCGs/Hubs updated information by the end of the reporting period
  • 8 CCGs/Hubs did not update any information or confirm that currently held information was correct by the end of the period
  • 4 CCGs/Hubs have never submitted data as they have not had a patient in scope of this collection since the transfer of this collection to HSCIC.

During February 2016 there were:

  • 2,500 patients in care from the previous month
  • 70 admissions to hospital
  • 110 discharges/transfers from hospital
  • 5 patients admitted and discharged/transferred in the period.

Please note, the Reference Data Tables were replaced on 22-3-16. This was to correct an error identified with the historical figures.  This affected data for March 2015- January 2016 in tables 2-10 and 14. The February 2016 figures are unaffected by this.
