Release of 'End of Year Final' data
From April 2020 onwards, NHS Digital has been implementing a multiple submission window model (MSWM) for MHSDS. This allows providers to retrospectively submit data for a specific reporting period once the initial provisional and performance submission windows have closed. Please click on 'Multiple Submission Window Model' under 'Related Links' at the bottom of this page for further information.
'End of Year Final' versions of the main monthly csv files for each of the 5 months between April 2021 and August 2021 which reflect these revised 2021/22 MSWM submissions that occurred after 'Performance' monthly data had already been published are now available.
The September 2021 publication was the final monthly report to be published using data collected under MHSDS version 4.1, and as such, contained 'End of Year Final' rather than 'Performance' data when originally published.
'End of Year Final' versions of the 'Mental Health Act', 'Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder', 'Children and Young People and Perinatal' and 'Length of Stay metrics' CSV files have been released where applicable also.
An 'End of Year Final' version of the 'Restrictive Interventions' CSV file was released in July 2022.
The MHSDS Monthly: Performance and Provisional Access and Waiting Times Reference Tables excel files have not been reissued using 'End of Year Final' data. However the underlying Access and Waiting Times measures are available as 'End of Year Final' data within the MHSDS Monthly: End of Year Final MHSDS Data CSV file.
NHS Digital published 'End of Year Final' versions of the main monthly csv files for each of the 5 months between October 2021 and February 2022 in July 2022.
Reissue of the Performance August and Provisional September 2021 MHSDS Data Files
An issue has been identified with the subnational data presented for two measures:
- ED86e - Proportion of referrals with eating disorders categorized as urgent cases entering treatment within one week in RP, aged 0-18
- ED87e - Proportion of referrals with eating disorders categorized as routine cases entering treatment within four weeks in RP, aged 0-18
which appear in each of the following CSV files
- MHSDS Monthly: Performance August 2021 MHSDS Data File
- MHSDS Monthly: Provisional September 2021 MHSDS Data File
This issue has been fixed and each of the files have been reissued as version 2. The other measures in each file were unaffected. NHS Digital apologises for any inconvenience caused.
Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) Data Quality Issue
Some EIP measure values (mainly the ‘Not on EIP pathway’ measures) for Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (TAJ) are excessively high due to a data quality issue and do not reflect actual activity.
As a result, certain EIP measure values at national level are also much higher than they otherwise would be. For example, for Aug-21 Performance, the national EIP32 and EIP63 measure values including TAJ are 13,457 and 4,647 respectively. Excluding TAJ, the national EIP32 and EIP63 measure values are 8,447 and 3,692 respectively.
In December 2020, Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (TAJ) migrated to a new Electronic Patient Record. As a result of the implementation, (Suspected) First Episode Psychosis / At Risk Mental State within PRIMARY REASON FOR REFERRAL (MENTAL HEALTH) was made available to all teams within scope of the MHSDS, when it should have been restricted to teams qualified to provide treatment for FEP/ARMS.
The system configuration has now been modified to reflect this. TAJ have also resubmitted April to September 2021 MHSDS data, though the first monthly MHSDS publication this revised data will feed into will be September 2021 Performance, due to be published on Thursday 9th December 2021. It will also feed into ‘End of Year’ monthly CSV files containing finalised data for every month from April 2021 onwards, however TAJ data for each month from December 2020 to March 2021 inclusive will not be revised as the 2020/21 multiple submission window model deadline closed on Friday 21st May 2021.
