COMMISSIONING DATA SET VALIDATION TABLE

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

This table details the Data Elements used in the different versions of the Commissioning Data Sets and the validation applied in each CDS TYPE

This table is also available to download in Excel format from the CDS Supporting Information section of the NHS Data Model and Dictionary website.

Commissioning Data Set Versions

Table Structure

This table is structured with separate rows for each Data Element and separate columns for each CDS TYPE.  Where the rules have changed between versions, each set of rules has its own sub-row.  The cells within the body of the table show the validation applied to a Data Element for a specific CDS TYPE.

Commissioning Data Set Versions
The following notation is used in the "Version" column to identify the version or versions of the Commissioning Data Sets that the validation rule applies to.

V6-1 - CDS Version CDS006 Type List (incorporates Version CDS 6-1)
V5 - CDS Version NHS005 Type List

Where the same rules apply to several Commissioning Data Sets the first and last version are identified.

V5:6-1 Commissioning Data Set Version 5 through to Version 6-1

Where a Data Element is no longer available in a Commissioning Data Set the version number is suffixed with =R

Notation used in each table cell

Blank cell - the CDS TYPE does not include the Data Element
Populated cell - the CDS TYPE includes the Data Element.  The notation includes the content validation, optional population validation and optional additional use cases for the Data Element

Content validation
The content validation falls into one of the following two types:

F - The format is validated, for example the format of a DATE must comply with the XML standard
V - The Data Element is validated against an explicit list of permitted values

Population validation
Where a Data Element is required, the content validation is suffixed with a population validation code:

Technical constraints
M - This Data Element is mandatory in the XML schema.  Submissions will not flow if this Data Element is absent
C - There are conditions where the Data Element must be populated.  In these conditions, messages will not flow if this Data Element is absent
Business constraints
R - Data required as part of NHS business rules to meet NHS business requirements. Organisations are obliged to provide this Data Element for activity provided or commissioned by the NHS.
* - There are conditions where the Data Element must not be populated.  Business rules for the anonymisation of data should be applied as per the guidance issued in Security Issues and Patient Confidentiality.
Additional use cases

Secondary Uses Service business rules:

S1 This mandatory CDS DATE is used as the originating date to determine the mandatory CDS ACTIVITY DATE.
S2 The Secondary Uses Service DOES NOT support the use of the CDS TEST INDICATOR Therefore this Data Element must not be used.
S3 For Security Issues and Patient Confidentiality for further information.
S4 Used to ensure the correct sequencing of multiple and/or subsequent Commissioning Data Set submissions.
S5 These Organisation Codes must be present and registered with the Secondary Uses Service. The Commissioning Data Set Schema does not logically validate the content value of this data.
S6 All CDS REPORT PERIOD START DATES and CDS REPORT PERIOD END DATES must be consistent in all Commissioning Data Sets contained in a BULK Interchange submission.
The CDS REPORT PERIOD START DATE must be on or before the CDS REPORT PERIOD END DATE.
The CDS ACTIVITY DATE is a mandatory Data Element and must fall within the period defined. See the Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocol.
S7 See the Commissioning Data Set Addressing Grid
S8 These Data Elements are required for correct processing by the Secondary Uses Service. If omitted, the Secondary Uses Service will reject the Commissioning Data Set data.
S9 The CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER is a mandatory data item when using the Net Change Protocol. When using the Bulk Update Protocol this data item is optional but it is strongly advised that where it can be correctly generated and maintained it should be used. See the Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocol.
S10 For CDS V6 TYPE 170 - ADMITTED PATIENT CARE - DETAINED AND/OR LONG TERM PSYCHIATRIC CENSUS COMMISSIONING DATA SET, the CDS ACTIVITY DATE contains the CDS CENSUS DATE which is also the DETAINED AND (OR) LONG TERM PSYCHIATRIC CENSUS DATE.
S11 For the following CDS TYPES, the CDS ACTIVITY DATE must contain the DATE OF ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST CENSUS which is usually the end of the Period being reported:
CDS V6 TYPE 030 - ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST - END OR PERIOD CENSUS (STANDARD) COMMISSIONING DATA SET
CDS V6 TYPE 040 - ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST - END OR PERIOD CENSUS (OLD) COMMISSIONING DATA SET
CDS V6 TYPE 050 - ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST - END OR PERIOD CENSUS (NEW) COMMISSIONING DATA SET
S12 These PERSON BIRTH DATE Data Elements must use dates between 01/01/1880 and 31/12/2999 in order to pass validation.
S13 Data Elements reporting a DATE (which is not PERSON BIRTH DATE Data Element) must use dates between 01/010/1900 and 31/12/2999 in order to pass validation.S13 Data Elements reporting a DATE (which is not PERSON BIRTH DATE Data Element) must use dates between 01/01/1900 and 31/12/2999 in order to pass validation.
S14 For Data Elements reporting a TIME, the hour portion must be between 00 and 23 inclusive in order to pass validation.

Healthcare Resource Groups:

H4 This Data Element is used by the Secondary Uses Service to derive Healthcare Resource Group 4.  Failure to correctly populate this Data Element is likely to result in an incorrect Healthcare Resource Group, usually associated with lower levels of healthcare resource.

Additional notation
† - This notation has been applied to the following items:
CDS TYPE 021 Future Out-Patient Commissioning Data Set - Following consultation, piloting and proof that all items are appropriate, this Commissioning Data Set will be available for referrals without appointments, future scheduled appointments and cancelled appointments where the appointment date is in the future. In the interim it is recommended this CDS TYPE is only used for piloting.
Lead Care Activity Indicator - this Data Element is undefined, must not be submitted and should not flow in the Commissioning Data Sets.
LOCATION TYPE - the definition and value list for this Data Element is under review. Dependent on the review findings changes may be piloted and then approved. Until that time, this Data Element should not flow in the Commissioning Data Sets.
ADMINISTRATIVE CATEGORY (AT START OF EPISODE) and LEGAL STATUS CLASSIFICATION CODE (AT START OF EPISODE) - these Data Elements have not been piloted and therefore should not flow in the Commissioning Data Sets.

The Standard Contract

The Standard Contract Schedule 5 requires Health Care Providers to ensure that the following Commissioning Data Sets are submitted to the Commissioners on a monthly basis within 5 Operational Days of the end of the month to which the data sets relate, so that the data sets are completed by the applicable Reconciliation Point:

  • NHS providers of specialised services, where the primary function of the specialist clinical multidisciplinary team is concerned with the provision of screening, diagnosis and management of sexually transmissible infections and related genital medical conditions.
  • All Enhanced Sexual Health Services  (ESHS) commissioned by the NHS who offer testing, diagnostic and/or treatment of Sexually Transmitted Infections.

 Enhanced Sexual Health Services include:

It should be noted that General Practitioner with a Special Interest (GPwSI) will only be included if they operate from a practice that has been commissioned to provide an Enhanced Sexual Health Service.

Time period: The extract will cover one calendar quarter.

Frequency: Reports will be run quarterly, 6 weeks after the end of the quarter.

Format: Data returned should be formatted into a single comma separated variable (csv) file. The data elements should be transmitted in the order specified in the Genitourinary Medicine Clinic Activity Data Set.

Transmission: Electronic files will be transmitted to the Health Protection Agency through a secure web portal in the Health Protection Agency website. This web portal enables ORGANISATIONS to submit data files in a secure manner to the HIV and STI Department of the Health Protection Agency across the Internet.  The web portal can be found at HIV & STI web portal.

Connection to the web portal requires a login account name and password, which will be available from the project administrator at the Health Protection Agency. Please contact gumcad@hpa.org.uk for access or more information.

MENTAL HEALTH MINIMUM DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Mental Health Minimum Data Set was introduced by Data Set Change Notice 20/19/P13 in April 2000 in response to the lack of national clinical data collection in the mental health arena, in line with the information requirements of the emerging National Service Framework for Mental Health.

Since April 2003 (Data Set Change Notice 49/2002) it has been a mandatory requirement that all Providers of specialist adult, including elderly, mental health services submit central Mental Health Minimum Data Set returns on a quarterly basis, with an additional annual submission.

The Mental Health Minimum Data Set facilitates the collection of person-focussed clinical data and the sharing of such data to underpin the delivery of mental health care. It is structured around the clinical process and includes an outcome assessment (Health of the Nation Outcome Scale (Working Age Adults), or HoNOS (Working Age Adults)). It records the key role played by partner agencies, particularly social services.

The Mental Health Minimum Data Set describes Adult Mental Health Care Spells. These comprise all interventions made for a PATIENT by a specialist Adult Mental Health Care Team from initial REFERRAL REQUEST to final discharge. For some individuals the Adult Mental Health Care Spell will comprise a short Consultant Out-Patient Episode; for others it may extend over many years and include hospital, community, out-patient and day care episodes.

Information is collected relating to various stages in the journey of the PATIENT, including activity such as Hospital Provider Spells, Consultant Out-Patient Episodes, community care, and NHS day care episodes; mental health reviews and assessments including Care Programme Approach (CPA) and Health of the Nation Outcome Scale (Working Age Adults) contacts with mental health professionals such as care co-ordinators, psychiatric NURSES and CONSULTANTS; and also any diagnosis and treatment.

The prime purpose of the Mental Health Minimum Data Set is to provide local clinicians and managers with better quality information for clinical audit, and service planning and management.

Central collection provides improved national information, facilitating feedback to Trusts, and the setting of benchmarks. It will also allow the delivery of the National Service Framework for Mental Health priorities to be monitored.

The Mental Health Minimum Data Set data is collected from NHS funded providers of specialist mental health services and submitted via the Bureau Services Portal provided by the Systems and Services Delivery (SSD) team at NHS Connecting For Health.  The Bureau Service processes submissions and produces local extracts for provider and commissioner ORGANISATIONS, and a national pseudonymised extract for The NHS Information Centre for health and social care, for storage, analysis and reporting.

Please note that the collection of the Mental Health Minimum Data Set does not replace any other collection of mental health data such as the Admitted Patient Care Commissioning Data Set Type Detained and/or Long Term Psychiatric Census, which should continue to be collected.

For further information on the Mental Health Minimum Data Set, please view the following The NHS Information Centre for health and social care website: http://www.For further information on the Mental Health Minimum Data Set, please view The NHS Information Centre for health and social care website: http://www.ic.nhs.uk/services/mental-health/mhmds

Note 1: Codes for Executive Agency, Executive Agency Programme, Executive Agency Site and Executive Agency Programme Department do not easily fit into the coding frames as shown above and are therefore not included. This is due to their unusual structure in that there are more hierarchical 'tiers' than with other organisations.

Executive Agency and Executive Agency Programme are both considered Organisation level entities, although each Programme does have a relationship to an Executive Agency. Executive Agency codes are three characters long. Executive Agency Programme codes are six, and their first three characters are the same as the Executive Agency they are associated to.

Department codes of eight characters long can then be allocated underneath a Programme code (sharing the first six characters). Executive Agency Site codes of five characters long can be allocated under an Executive Agency code (and share the first three characters).

Note 2: The Pan SHAs are made up of confederations of SHAs and as such, are Health Areas, not organisations. However, it has been recognised that these health areas do require codes in order that NHS systems continue to function.

Note: A-9 indicates that characters A-Z and 0-9 are valid: except B, I, O, S, U and Z (to avoid ambiguity).

Note: Codes for Executive Agency, Executive Agency Programme, Executive Agency Site and Executive Agency Programme Department do not easily fit into the coding frames as shown above and are therefore not included. This is due to their unusual structure in that there are more hierarchical 'tiers' than with other organisations.

Executive Agency and Executive Agency Programme are both considered Organisation level entities, although each Programme does have a relationship to an Executive Agency. Executive Agency codes are three characters long. Executive Agency Programme codes are six, and their first three characters are the same as the Executive Agency they are associated to.

Department codes of eight characters long can then be allocated underneath a Programme code (sharing the first six characters). Executive Agency Site codes of five characters long can be allocated under an Executive Agency code (and share the first three characters).

Note: A-9 indicates that characters A-Z and 0-9 are valid: except B, I, O, S, U and Z (to avoid ambiguity).

This should always be the ORGANISATION CODE of the original commissioner for Commissioning Data Sets to support Payment by Results.

The Department of Health document "Who pays? Establishing the Responsible Commissioner" sets out a framework for establishing responsibility for commissioning an individual's care within the NHS, (i.e. determining who pays for a PATIENT’s care.) The guidance is set out in three sections:

  1. Section 1: Establishing who pays - sets out the key principles
  2. Section 2: Applying the key principles - gives further details about a number of services and situations where further clarification of how the key principles are applied may be helpful
  3. Section 3: Exceptions to the key principles - outlines the exceptions to the key principles e.g. prisoners, continuing care arrangements.

Note: There is no obligation for a PERSON to state their place of residence (particularly where an issue of security arises).
Enquiries relating to this document should be directed to the Department of Health, see the Department of Health website for contact details.

The following sections, provide guidance as to which code(s) should be used as the ORGANISATION CODE (CODE OF COMMISSIONER).

General Medical Practitioner Practice Registration (England):

General Medical Practitioner Practice Registration (Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland):

PATIENTS from the Channel Islands:

Overseas PATIENTS: charge-exempt:

PATIENTS - liable for charges (Overseas and Private):

VPP00 'Private PATIENTS / Overseas Visitor liable for charge' should be used as the ORGANISATION CODE (CODE OF COMMISSIONER) for these PATIENTS.

Prisoners:

  • Since April 2003, GP Practice registration (if any) is disregarded for PERSONS who are detained in prison in England. The Primary Care Trust or Care Trust in which the prison is located is responsible for commissioning NHS services for those prisoners, including NHS dental services.
  • For those usually resident outside the United Kingdom, the responsible commissioner will be the Primary Care Trust or Care Trust in which the prison is located.
  • PERSONS usually resident overseas held in English prisons are exempt from charges for NHS hospital treatment. There is no centrally held budget for this group and costs should be borne by the Primary Care Trust or Care Trust in which the prison is located.

Ministry of Defence:

  • Upon enlistment, Primary Care Trusts and Care Trusts are required to de-register members of the British Armed Forces from their General Medical Practitioner Practice registration list and they should not be able to re-register until they have been discharged. During this time, the Ministry of Defence is responsible for their primary medical services which has specific contractual and entitlement arrangements with the NHS.
  • This does not apply to dependants of British Armed Forces members, who can remain registered with a General Medical Practitioner Practice.
  • XMD00 'Commissioner Code for Ministry of Defence (MoD) Healthcare' should be used as the ORGANISATION CODE (CODE OF COMMISSIONER) for members of British Armed Forces (not dependants).

This data element will be used in the national transmission of the Community Information Data Set. The Community Information Data Set is initially being introduced for local use only, from 1 April 2012. A future Information Standards Notice will be published to notify providers and system suppliers of the requirement to flow the data set nationally, and give further details relating to unique record identifiers and how the data will be handled by the receiving system.  The definition of the ORGANISATION CODE (PROVIDER AT RECORD CREATION) is given below to enable providers and system suppliers to prepare the data for national flow.

Notes:
ORGANISATION CODE (PROVIDER AT RECORD CREATION) is the same as attribute ORGANISATION CODE.

ORGANISATION CODE (PROVIDER AT RECORD CREATION) is the ORGANISATION CODE (CODE OF PROVIDER) at the time that a CIDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER for a record in a Community Information Data Set submission to the Secondary Uses Service was first created.

The Secondary Uses Service uses the ORGANISATION CODE (PROVIDER AT RECORD CREATION) and the CIDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER to uniquely identify a Community Information Data Set record over its lifetime, when the Net Change Community Information Data Set Update Mechanism is used. 

Therefore when using Net Change Submission Mechanism, it is imperative that, even if the ORGANISATION CODE (CODE OF PROVIDER) of the Health Care Provider changes (for example, there is a merger with another ORGANISATION), the ORGANISATION CODE (PROVIDER AT RECORD CREATION) carried in the record remains the same if the record is resubmitted to the Secondary Uses Service.  If this is not done, a duplicate record will be created.

Notes:
SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is the same as attribute ORGANISATION SITE CODE.

SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is the ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the ORGANISATION where the PATIENT was treated, i.e. it should enable the treating ORGANISATION to be identified.

This identifies the ORGANISATION SITE within the ORGANISATION on which the PATIENT was treated, since facilities may vary on different hospital sites.

The code recorded should always be the national code; if the treatment is sub-commissioned to another NHS Health Care Provider or an independent UK provider, the SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) used should be the ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the Health Care Provider actually carrying out the work.

Where treatment is sub-commissioned to an overseas provider the Organisation Data Service Default Code 89997 'Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION SITE CODE has been issued' is applicable. 

Each ORGANISATION has a unique ORGANISATION CODE. However, where an ORGANISATION has more than one site from which it provides SERVICES, then each site is uniquely identified. These sites are ORGANISATION SITES and are uniquely identified by ORGANISATION SITE CODE. The ORGANISATION SITE CODE contains the first 3 digits of the ORGANISATION CODE with the last two digits being the site identifier.

Example:

RA700ORGANISATION CODE of the ORGANISATION 
RA701ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the first identified ORGANISATION SITE within the ORGANISATION 
RA702ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the second identified ORGANISATION SITE within the ORGANISATION 

For out-patients, ACTIVITY may take place outside the hospital, such as in the PATIENT'S home; in such cases, raising a site code is impractical. Therefore, code R9998 'Not a hospital site (for use on Out-Patient CDS)' would be used in these circumstances.
Note: LOCATION CLASS is used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) message to indicate the classification of the physical LOCATION within which the ACTIVITY occurred. 

Use in the Future Outpatient CDS:
If the INTENDED SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is not known, this data element should be omitted.
