This publication provides the most timely picture available of people using NHS funded secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism services in England. These are experimental statistics which are undergoing development and evaluation. This information will be of use to people needing access to information quickly for operational decision making and other purposes. More detailed information on the quality and completeness of these statistics is made available later in our Mental Health Bulletin: Annual Report publication series.

A correction has been made to this publication on 07 May 2020. This amendment relates to a number of statistics published here; the specific measures effected are listed in the Metadata file available in the below link. All listed measures have now been corrected. The provisional statistics have also been removed as they are now superseded by the Final data published in the following month. NHS Digital apologises for any inconvenience caused.
