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.
The Provisional October, Provisional November 2021 publication was the first monthly report to be published using data collected under MHSDS version 5. 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.
Integration of specific standalone CSV files into main monthly file
As of July 2021 Performance onwards, data relating to specific themes previously published in standalone CSV files, including:
- Mental Health Act
- Children and Young People and Perinatal
- Length of Stay
- New Early Intervention in Psychosis
has now been incorporated into the main monthly file, and as such no longer appear in standalone files.
Data relating to Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder has already been integrated into the main monthly file as of June 2021 Performance.
Decommissioning of legacy Restrictive Interventions csv files and interactive report.
As of July 2021 Performance, the legacy Restrictive Interventions csv files containing data on and associated interactive report on the Mental Health data hub have been decommissioned.
These have been produced in parallel with four new Restrictive Interventions measures and a new interactive report for the past several months. The legacy csv files and legacy interactive report have now been discontinued, and are replaced by the new standalone csv file and new interactive report.
