Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) V5.0 Consultations

Closes 15 Mar 2021

Opened 17 Mar 2020

Overview

Dear Colleagues

The Data Set Development team are currently looking to consult on proposed changes for inclusion within v5.0 of the MHSDS, to go live from April 2021. 

We are looking to arrange a number of 1:1 consultations with service providers and system suppliers throughout April, to discuss the requirements in detail. This will help us ensure the solutions are fit for purpose and that the burden and benefits are evidenced. 

These consultations are on a voluntary basis and  due to COVID-19, they will be undertaken virtually via MS Teams, taking around 2 hours. We would like to extend invites for individual consultations, to any providers or suppliers who feel they would have capacity at this time to input into the development of solutions. 

Please note that we will be arranging these on a first come first served basis, so it is important you respond back to us as soon as possible, we are also looking for a good representative selection. Should you not receive confirmation of a place, please be aware that we will also be holding future webinars and events which we will communicate via our usual channels.

Please send your completed forms to the following email address: dataset.development@nhs.net

Kind Regards

Dataset Development

Why We Are Consulting

The aims for these consultations are to discuss the draft solutions with respect to local information systems, development timescales and to collect general feedback regarding local practice and wider considerations. These consultations will form a key part of our overall evidence and will ensure the justification, burden and risks of each change are fully articulated.

We will provide any additional material nearer the time.
