Release of 'End of Year' 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.
Throughout summer 2021, NHS Digital intends to release 'End of Year' versions of the main monthly csv files for each of the 11 months between April 2020 and February 2021 which reflect these revised 2020/21 MSWM submissions that occurred after 'Performance' monthly data had already been published.
'End of Year' data for 8 months within this range was released on 9 August 2021. Data for a further month (June 2020) was released on 23 August 2021 and data for the remaining 2 months in the range (April 2020 and May 2020) was released on 04 May 2022.
'End of Year' versions of the 'Mental Health Act' and 'Restrictive Interventions' CSV files have been released where applicable also.
Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder measures update
Investigations into an issue with the Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder measures previously published within the MHSDS Monthly: Performance February 2021 Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder Data File have now been completed. This file was removed pending investigation, but as of this update, has now been reinstated, although as an 'End of Year' version. If you hold a previously downloaded 'Performance' version, we advise downloading the 'End of Year' version from the link below. A revised version of the Provisional March 2021 data originally released has not been re-released as part of this February 2021 publication as it is now superseded by data published as part of the March 2021 publication. NHS Digital apologises for any inconvenience caused.
New Restrictive Interventions measures
As part of an improvement initiative, the two existing Restrictive Interventions measures (MHS76 and MHS77) were supplemented by four new measures (MHS96, MHS97, MHS98 and MHS99) from Performance April 2021 onwards and made available in a standalone 'Restrictive Interventions New' CSV File. Further information is available here. This CSV file has now been generated for historic monthly reporting periods for each month between September 2020 and March 2021.
