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 October 2021 and February 2022, collected under MHSDS version 5, which reflect these revised 2021/22 MSWM submissions that occurred after 'Performance' monthly data had already been published are now available.
'End of Year Final' versions of the 'Restrictive Interventions' csv files have also been made available.
'End of Year Final' versions of the main monthly csv files for each of the 5 months between April 2021 and August 2021, collected under MHSDS version 4.1, were published in April 2022.
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. The Provisional October, Provisional November 2021 publication was the first monthly report to be published using data collected under MHSDS version 5.
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.
MHSDS version change
This is the fifth monthly release using data collected under MHSDS version 5. Please refer to the January 2022 publication for an outline of the changes to the dataset introduced by the move to MHSDS version 5. Full details of the changes to the dataset are available in the Technical Output Specification and the updated constructions for all measures in this publication are available in the metadata file.
Error affecting Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) and Children’s Eating Disorders (ED) metrics
An error has been found in the Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) and Children’s Eating Disorders (ED) metrics. The error means that version 4.1 data is being evaluated using version 5 criteria, and as such, activity from September 2021 or earlier that forms part of the pathway and is valid under version 4.1 but not under version 5 has been wrongly excluded from the calculation of the metric.
This impacts published Performance data for October 2021 to February 2022.
The error has been corrected for the March 2022 Final data published on 9 June 2022. It has also been corrected in the ‘End of Year Final’ data for each month between October 2021 and February 2022, published on each of the relevant monthly publication pages on 14 July 2022.
Performance data for October 2021 to February 2022 will not be corrected, as the monthly Performance data for each of these months has now been superseded by the corrected ‘End of Year Final’ monthly data.
Please refer to 'Notes on Measures' for further details and an assessment of the impact of the error.
