Notes:
FORMAL ADMISSIONS (LEARNING DISABILITY PRIMARY REASON FOR USING ACT - MALE) is the total number of male PATIENTS detained under the Mental Health Act and admitted to a Hospital Provider Spell during the REPORTING PERIOD for a FORMAL ADMISSIONS SECTION TYPE, where learning disability was the primary reason for using the Mental Health Act.

It excludes transfers between Health Care Providers and between Hospital Sites of the same Health Care Provider which initiate a new Hospital Provider Spell where the MENTAL HEALTH ACT LEGAL STATUS CLASSIFICATION CODE is unchanged but includes such transfers where the MENTAL HEALTH ACT LEGAL STATUS CLASSIFICATION CODE does change.

It excludes admissions where the PATIENT is being treated under an active Supervised Community Treatment and/or subject of a Supervised Community Treatment Recall.

During the period 1st April 2008 and 31st March 2009 both MENTAL CATEGORY and MENTAL HEALTH ACT 2007 MENTAL CATEGORY will be in use to categorise mental disorder. But for the purposes of the KP90 collection only it has been agreed with stakeholders that the MENTAL CATEGORY of PATIENTS detained in the period up to 3rd November 2008 will be mapped to the categories of MENTAL HEALTH ACT 2007 MENTAL CATEGORY.

The mapping for use with this data element is:

 MENTAL CATEGORY MENTAL HEALTH ACT 2007 MENTAL CATEGORY 
   
 1 Mental illnessA Mental disorder (Learning Disability not present or not primary reason for using Act)
 2 Mental impairmentB Mental disorder (Learning Disability primary reason for using Act)
 3 Severe mental impairmentB Mental disorder (Learning Disability primary reason for using Act)
 4 Psychopathic disorderA Mental disorder (Learning Disability not present or not primary reason for using Act)
 5 Not specifiedA Mental disorder (Learning Disability not present or not primary reason for using Act)
1. It is a count of the total number of admission for all PATIENTS within the Health Care Provider for a given FORMAL ADMISSIONS SECTION TYPE where:
  a.the Hospital Provider Spell has a Start Date on or after the REPORTING PERIOD START DATE and the Start Date is before or on the REPORTING PERIOD END DATE 
  and 
   where the Hospital Provider Spell contains at least one Consultant Episode (Hospital Provider) where the main TREATMENT FUNCTION of the CONSULTANT is for a mental illness MAIN SPECIALTY. The mental illness MAIN SPECIALTY CODES being 700, 710, 711, 712, 713 and 715.
  and 
  b.the PERSON PROPERTY EFFECTIVE DATE for the MENTAL HEALTH ACT LEGAL STATUS CLASSIFICATION CODE of MENTAL HEALTH ACT LEGAL STATUS CLASSIFICATION is the same as the Start Date of the Hospital Provider Spell i.e. the MENTAL HEALTH ACT LEGAL STATUS CLASSIFICATION should be recorded when the PATIENT was admitted.
  and 
  c.the MENTAL HEALTH ACT LEGAL STATUS CLASSIFICATION CODE corresponds to the FORMAL ADMISSIONS SECTION TYPE 
  and 
  d.the PERSON GENDER CODE of the latest recorded PERSON GENDER (whether recorded before or within) the REPORTING PERIOD is National Code 'Male' 
  and 
   the PERSON GENDER TYPE for the PERSON GENDER is National Code 'Person Gender Current' 
  and 
  e.the MENTAL HEALTH ACT 2007 MENTAL CATEGORY of CATEGORY VALUED PERSON OBSERVATION is National Code B 'Mental Disorder (Learning Disability primary reason for using Act)' 
   See above for mapping MENTAL CATEGORY of PATIENTS detained and admitted in the period up to 3rd November 2008 to provide the appropriate category for MENTAL HEALTH ACT 2007 MENTAL CATEGORY 
  and 
   the PERSON PROPERTY EFFECTIVE DATE for the MENTAL HEALTH ACT 2007 MENTAL CATEGORY of CATEGORY VALUED PERSON OBSERVATION is the same as the Start Date of the Hospital Provider Spell i.e. the MENTAL HEALTH ACT 2007 MENTAL CATEGORY should be recorded when the PATIENT was admitted.
2. Where no admissions match these criteria then FORMAL ADMISSIONS (LEARNING DISABILITY PRIMARY REASON FOR USING ACT - MALE) should be set to zero.
