Mental Health Services Dataset – Children and Young Peoples Access measure in MHSDS

Target Audience: Providers, Commissioners and System Suppliers.

This webinar will look at how the measure of ‘Number of children and young people accessing NHS funded community mental health services in England’ often referred to as ‘Children and Young People Access’ measure is created using data from the Mental Health Services Dataset (MHSDS).

For the previous two financial years this measure has been calculated partly through data held in the MHSDS and partly through a bespoke validation exercise. The aim is to create this measure wholly through data held in the MHSDS.

The webinar will include details on how providers can ensure the data submitted to the MHSDS is of sufficient quality to reflect their activity in this area.

The webinar will also include information on how to use the Multiple Submission Model to submit data previously not submitted to MHSDS for the 19/20 reporting period.
