•201 CCGs/Hubs had updated information by the end of the quarter
•15 CCGs/Hubs did not update any information or confirm that currently held information was correct by the end of quarter
•3 CCGs/Hubs have never submitted data as they have not had a patient in scope of this collection since the transfer to HSCIC

During Quarter 4 2015/16 there were:

•2,370 patients in care from the previous quarter
