Notes:
DSCN 07/2000 implemented a change to replace the composite data items WARD TYPE AT PSYCHIATRIC CENSUS DATE and WARD TYPE AT START OF EPISODE within Commissioning Data Set by their constituent components. For Commissioning Data Set message purposes therefore the constituent component WARD NIGHT PERIOD AVAILABILITY is required to be separately recorded.

The value for the number of days open only during the night is as recorded by attribute WARD NIGHT PERIOD AVAILABILITY, but with the addition of Home Leave:

Permitted National Codes:

0Zero nights
1One night

WARD NIGHT PERIOD AVAILABILITY will be replaced with WARD NIGHT PERIOD AVAILABILITY CODE, which should be used for all new and developing data sets and for XML messages.
