Introduction

The NHS Continuing Healthcare Patient Level Data Set is PATIENT level, output based, secondary user data set. It delivers robust, comprehensive, nationally consistent and comparable PERSON centred information for people who are in receipt of, or whose eligibility is being assessed for, NHS Continuing Healthcare or NHS-funded Nursing Care. The data set does not include information about requests for an independent review of an NHS Continuing Healthcare  eligibility decision.

As a secondary uses data set the NHS Continuing Healthcare Patient Level Data Set re-uses operational data for purposes other than direct PATIENT care. It defines the data items, definitions and associated value sets to be extracted or derived from local systems.

The data collected in the NHS Continuing Healthcare Patient Level Data Set  covers all NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care   ACTIVITY undertaken by  Clinical Commissioning Groups  (or other ORGANISATIONS acting on their behalf), in line with the NHS Continuing Healthcare (National Framework) in England.
