LEARNING DISABILITY

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

A Learning Disability (formerly known as a Mental Handicap and referred to as an Intellectual Disability) is a type of DISABILITY.

A Learning Disability usually has a significant impact on a PERSON's life. A PERSON with a Learning Disability finds it harder than others to learn, understand and communicate.

People with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities need full-time help with every aspect of their lives, including eating, drinking, washing, dressing and toileting etc.

Learning Disability includes the presence of a significantly reduced ability to understand new or complex information, to learn new skills (impaired intelligence), with

  • a reduced ability to cope independently (impaired social functioning)
  • which started before adulthood, with a lasting effect on development.

Further information regarding people covered by definition can be found in the document 'Valuing People - A New Strategy for Learning Disability for the 21st Century'.

Although, from a social care perspective, an Intelligence Quotient (IQ) of seventy or less is not sufficient reason for deciding if an individual should be provided with additional health and social care support, the following definition is applied within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Secondary Uses Data Set in the specific circumstance where data providers do not have an explicit data item to capture whether a PATIENT has a Learning Disability.Although, from a social care perspective, an Intelligence Quotient (IQ) of seventy or less is not sufficient reason for deciding if an individual should be provided with additional health and social care support, the following definition is applied within the Mental Health Services Data Set in the specific circumstance where data providers do not have an explicit data item to capture whether a PATIENT has a Learning Disability. 

Someone is considered to have a Learning Disability when they function at a level of intellectual ability which is significantly lower than their chronological age. This is usually considered to be equivalent to having an IQ of seventy or less:

  • Mild Learning Disability (roughly equivalent to an IQ of fifty to seventy) is comparable to the educational term 'Moderate Learning Difficulty'. It is usually caused by a combination of restricted learning and social opportunities plus a high rate of low to average intellectual ability and Learning Disability in close relatives.

  • Moderate-to-profound Learning Disability (roughly equivalent to an IQ below fifty) is comparable to the educational term 'Severe Learning Difficulty'. It usually has a specific biological cause.

Note: A Learning Difficulty is a type of Special Education Need which affects areas of learning, such as reading, writing, spelling, mathematics etc.

Further information on Learning Disabilities, can be found on the internet, for example:

NATIONAL CANCER WAITING TIMES MONITORING DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Introduction:

The Cancer Reform Strategy (2007) introduced new and changed commitments in terms of service standards for cancer PATIENTS that must be met. A Review of Cancer Waiting Times Standards was carried out by the Department of Health and published alongside Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer (2011).

Following this review it was confirmed in Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer that:

“overall, cancer waiting time standards should be retained. Shorter waiting times can help to ease patient anxiety and, at best, can lead to earlier diagnosis, quicker treatment, a lower risk of complications, an enhanced patient experience and improved cancer outcomes. The current cancer waiting times standards will therefore be retained.”

This updated version of the National Cancer Waiting Times Monitoring Data Set supports the continued management and monitoring of the following waiting times:

Patient Pathway Scenarios:

The Patient Pathway Scenarios for the National Cancer Waiting Times Monitoring Data Set are to be used to manage the collection of data for all PATIENTS suspected of having, or diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer for the purpose of this data collection exercise is defined using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes. Data for Patient Pathway Scenarios two to seven must be collected and transmitted as specified for all PATIENTS with a PRIMARY DIAGNOSIS within the range C00 to C97 or D05, or a secondary or metastatic disease linked to the original PRIMARY DIAGNOSIS (ICD) within this range (excluding categories relating to non-melanoma skin cancer).

A full list of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) diagnosis codes the Cancer Waiting Times Database will accept is available at: Cancer Waiting Times.

When reporting patient records to the Cancer Waiting Times Database:

  • The Trust first seeing a PATIENT in a particular month or quarter is responsible for ensuring that the mandated and required data fields, up to DATE FIRST SEEN, are complete on the database by the national deadline.
  • The Trust first treating or giving subsequent treatment to a PATIENT in a particular month or quarter is responsible for ensuring that the mandated data fields on that PATIENT are complete on the database by the national deadline.
  • Data to be complete and validated 25 working days after the REPORTING PERIOD END DATE, either month or quarter
  • Specified dates are available at: Cancer Waiting Times.

Transmission:

  • Information can be entered either manually through the Cancer Waiting Times Record screen (as an individual record) or via the available batch upload function.
  • The specification for the csv upload file is detailed in the 'National Cancer Waiting Times User Manual' available at: Cancer Waiting Times.
  • Further information relating to the data items required for the seven scenarios can be found at  Patient Pathway Scenarios.
  • The ability to transmit the data to the Cancer Waiting Times Database in XML format will be introduced from 1 October 2016 with the current csv upload function being discontinued from 1 April 2017. Data for submission will be formatted into an XML file as per Technology Reference Data Update Distribution (TRUD) at: NHS Data Model and Dictionary: DD XML Schemas.

Security and Confidentiality:

Security and confidentiality information to accompany the collection of this information is available at: Cancer Waiting Times.

NATIONAL DIRECT ACCESS AUDIOLOGY WAITING TIMES DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The National Direct Access Audiology Waiting Times Data Set collects performance information on a monthly basis on the Referral To Treatment pathways of PATIENTS who are receiving NHS funded audiology treatment in England, who are not already included in the Referral To Treatment Data Set data collection. This includes:

  • both analogue and digital hearing aid fittings
  • services provided directly by NHS Healthcare Providers and also NHS funded PATIENTS treated via the Independent Sector and third sector providers (collected directly or via Primary Care Trusts)
  • both new and existing PATIENTS
  • any other PATIENTS attending Audiology services directly

For the purposes of the National Direct Access Audiology Waiting Times Data Set, "Direct Access" means PATIENTS who are not referred via Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist or other hospital CONSULTANT. Any pathways that are subject to the 18 week waiting time target for Referral to Treatment are out of scope. For this reason PATIENTS on Ear, Nose and Throat pathways (or pathways from other specialties) are excluded from this central return data set - information on these PATIENTS is available via the Referral To Treatment Data Set data collection.

The National Direct Access Audiology Waiting Times Data Set is in two parts, as follows:

Part 1 - Treated Patients should be completed for PATIENTS who have had an ACTIVITY which ends their REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD (such as first definitive treatment, or a decision not to treat), within the REPORTING PERIOD.

Part 2 - Untreated Patients should be completed for PATIENTS without a REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD END DATE within the REPORTING PERIOD.

For further guidance, see NHS England website at: Direct Access Audiology.

NHS ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONAL SERVICE (REFERRAL TO TREATMENT MEASUREMENT)

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

An NHS Allied Health Professional Service (Referral To Treatment Measurement) is a SERVICE involving the treatment of a PATIENT by one of the following types of Allied Health Professional:

Where the Allied Health Professional works in a Community Health Service, the Department of Health requires their Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment Measurement activity to be reported in the Community Information Data Set

Where the Allied Health Professional activity took place at an Out-Patient Clinic, the Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment Measurement activity must be reported in the CDS V6-2 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set.  In addition to this, where an Allied Health Professional sees a PATIENT on a WARD but the ACTIVITY is not related to the Hospital Provider Spell the PATIENT is being treated under, this should be regarded as replacing an Out-Patient Appointment Non-Consultant, and a CDS V6-2 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set record should flow.  ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE may be submitted to allow identification of this Allied Health Professional ACTIVITY.  For example, if a Podiatrist were asked to see a patient who was currently admitted for a condition where the agreed care pathway did not include Podiatry services, then an Out-Patient Appointment Non-Consultant should be recorded, with the ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE of E02 'WARD', and the relevant Referral To Treatment data items also completed.

Further guidance relating to the Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment initiative can be found at the Department of Health Publications website.Further guidance relating to Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment initiative can be found on the Department of Health part of the gov.uk website at: the Revised guide for referral to treatment for allied health professionals.

ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE

Change to Data Element: Changed Description

Format/Length:an3
National Codes:See ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE 
Default Codes: 

Notes:
ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE is the same as attribute ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE.

Use in Commissioning Data Set Version 6-2 onwards

Where Out-Patient Clinics are held on WARDS (such as Pre-assessment Clinics), these should be categorised as ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE National Code E01 'Out-Patient Clinic' and not National Code E02 'WARD'.  This will allow Ward Attendances to be differentiated from Out-Patient Clinics in the CDS V6-2 Type 020 - Outpatient Commissioning Data Set flow.

For ACTIVITY falling under Allied Health Professional Referral To Treatment Measurement, ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE may be submitted to allow identification of Allied Health Professional ACTIVITY taking place on WARDS, which is not related to the Hospital Provider Spell for the PATIENT being seen by the Allied Health Professional.  For example, if a Podiatrist were asked to see a patient who was currently admitted for a condition where the agreed care pathway did not include Podiatry services, then an Out-Patient Appointment Non-Consultant should be recorded, with the ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE of E02 'WARD'.  For example, if a Podiatrist were asked to see a PATIENT who was currently admitted for a condition where the agreed care pathway did not include Podiatry services, then an Out-Patient Appointment Non-Consultant should be recorded, with the ACTIVITY LOCATION TYPE CODE of E02 'WARD'.

ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT)

Change to Data Element: Changed Description

Format/Length:min an5 max an9
National Codes: 
ODS Default Codes:R9998 - Not a hospital site (for use on Out-Patient CDS)
ODS Default Codes:R9998 - Not a hospital site
 89999 - Non-NHS UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued
 89997 - Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued

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

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

ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) 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 ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) used should be the ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER 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 IDENTIFIER has been issued' is applicable.

Each Organisation has a unique ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER. 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 an ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER.

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. Therefore, code R9998 'Not a hospital site' 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.

SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), when it has been approved for use in national information standards.
