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 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:

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

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

Each ORGANISATION has a unique ORGANISATION SITE 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 SITE 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' would be used in these circumstances.
Note: LOCATION CLASS is used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) message to indicate 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.SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), which is the most recent approved national information standard to describe the required definition.

SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT)

Change to Data Element: Changed Description

Format/Length:min an5 max an9
National Codes: 
Default Codes:R9998 - Not a hospital site
 89999 - Non-NHS UK Provider where no ORGANISATION SITE CODE has been issued
 89997 - Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION SITE CODE has been issued

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' 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.SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), which is the most recent approved national information standard to describe the required definition.
