Introduction

Public Health England (PHE) is required to monitor and evaluate the NHS National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) through the reporting of data.

The Chlamydia Testing Activity Data Set collects information on all chlamydia testing commissioned by the NHS and carried out in all Laboratory settings in England. It includes results taken from all PATIENTS tested for Chlamydia in all NHS settings, or in non-healthcare settings and as part of the NHS National Chlamydia Screening Programme in England.

Public Health England (PHE) is required to monitor and evaluate the NHS National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) through the reporting of data.

Data Extract Specification

Description: Each Laboratory will be required to generate a quarterly disaggregated data extract of all chlamydia tests carried out using Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing (NAAT).

Time period: The extract will cover one calendar quarter, based on the date the SAMPLE is received at the Laboratory.

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

Format: Data returned should be formatted to a comma separated variable (CSV) or MS Excel file.

Transmission: Electronic files will be transmitted to Public Health England through the secure Microbiology and Epidemiology of STI's and HIV (MESH) Departments web portal. Connection to the portal requires a login account name and password which are available from Public Health England.

Mandation

The Mandation column indicates the recommendation for the inclusion of data:

COMMISSIONING DATA SET ADDRESSING GRID

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

This page has been updated in DDCN 1645 (Specialised Commissioning: Removal of Default Code YDD82) to remove the National Commissioning Group, as NHS England became responsible for commissioning all specialised services in April 2013.
The page will be updated as part of an Information Standard to reflect the current arrangements for the Commissioning Data Sets.

The Commissioning Data Set Addressing Grid below illustrates which ORGANISATION CODES should be used to populate the CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY and CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY for each PATIENT / NHS SERVICE AGREEMENT.  See the specific ORGANISATION CODE Data Elements for further information on their usage and Organisation Data Service Default Codes etc.

Health Care Providers need to specify the ORGANISATIONS that have a right to the commissioning data set data as a CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY or CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY. This is so that they can access the data once it has been stored in the Secondary Uses Service.

Please note that payment via the National Tariff Payment System is not determined by the CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY or CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY.

INTER-PROVIDER TRANSFER ADMINISTRATIVE MINIMUM DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Introduction

This Inter-Provider Transfer Administrative Minimum Data Set specifies the data necessary to permit the receiving Health Care Provider to be able to report the PATIENT's progress along their PATIENT PATHWAY and, in particular, their REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD.

The NHS need to measure and monitor the REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD within PATIENT PATHWAYS to ensure that they are progressing as planned to achieve the 18 weeks target.

In an estimated 10% to 20% of cases, responsibility for the PATIENT PATHWAY will be transferred between Health Care Providers. The receiving Health Care Provider would be unable to report on the 18 weeks target for these cases unless the referring Health Care Provider supplied the PATIENT PATHWAY information at the time of transfer.

This data set specifies the data necessary to permit the receiving Health Care Provider to be able to report the PATIENT's progress along their PATIENT PATHWAY and, in particular, their REFERRAL TO TREATMENT PERIOD.

Scope and Collection

NHS CONTINUING HEALTHCARE DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Introduction

The NHS Continuing Healthcare Data Set is transmitted at aggregate level to the NHS Digital Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS) with publication outputs available on the NHS England website at: NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care. 

The Department of Health and Social Care introduced the National framework for NHS continuing healthcare and NHS-funded nursing care in 2007 to establish a consistent and standardised guide to implementing the delivery of NHS Continuing Healthcare (NHS CHC). This was last revised in March 2018 and replaces the previous 2012 version. The National Framework sets out NHS Continuing Healthcare and assessment processes. The latest version places a strong focus on moving assessments outside of an acute setting.

In order to monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the Framework, a mandatory collection requires the submission of quarterly figures on NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care activity.

It is based on MAIN SPECIALTY but also includes approved sub-specialties and treatment specialties used by lead CARE PROFESSIONALS including CONSULTANTS.

TREATMENT FUNCTION, rather than the Royal College or Faculty specialty, is required on most activity returns and in the Commissioning Data Sets.

TREATMENT FUNCTION CODES should be used for all data sets/collections unless otherwise stated e.g. National Workforce Data Set uses MAIN SPECIALTY CODES.

GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER, NURSE and Allied Health Professional/ Biomedical Scientist/ Clinical Scientist ACTIVITY should be recorded against the TREATMENT FUNCTION under which the PATIENT is treated.

Joint Consultant Clinic ACTIVITY should be recorded against the TREATMENT FUNCTION which best describes the specialised service.

Assigning a Treatment Function Code:

For further information, contact NHS Digital by email at: enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk with the subject "Main Specialty and Treatment Function Codes".

Further information on the groupings and scope of each TREATMENT FUNCTION CODE is provided at: Main Specialty and Treatment Function Codes Table.

Note:

  • New National Codes for TREATMENT FUNCTION CODE were introduced from 2 April 2020 as part of the update to the DCB0028: Treatment Function and Main Specialty Standard.
    • Page 8 of the "Change Specification" provides a list of the new TREATMENT FUNCTION CODES.
    • Note that new codes should not be reported nationally until the functionality to do so becomes available in the next release of the affected data sets and any associated XML Schemas.
    • Prior to these updates, health and care ORGANISATIONS must review the impact of this information standard and make appropriate changes to local health IT systems from 2 April 2020 and before 1 April 2021.
    • Where new National Codes are recorded locally, these will need to be mapped to an appropriate existing code for transmission and reporting purposes.
