This report presents findings from the Out of Area Placements (OAPs) collection. The collection is expected to capture the details of all OAPs in England from both NHS and independent providers. NHS Digital is running this interim OAPs data collection in the Clinical Audit Platform (CAP) until the data becomes aligned and available from the MHSDS. The MHSDS is the chosen mechanism for the long term collection of this data.
Update January 2018: Table 9 has been updated due to an error in reporting participation for some organisations. We apologise for any inconvenience.
