DSCN 07/2000 implemented a change to replace this composite data element within Commissioning Data Set by the constituent components listed below. This description has been retained for information purposes only and this data element should not be used in any current or future message.
This is a composite data item required to be recorded within a Hospital Episode Statistics Psychiatric Census Record: Additional Data Field and is a description of the characteristics of a ward which covers resources available to intended users. It is derived from several constituent components each of which although based upon NHS Data Model and Dictionary attribute classifications, are not the same; for example, Home Leave has been added to each classification list.
The derived value has six constituent component parts, AABCDEF. The value is derived as follows:
|AA||Clinical Care Intensity, see INTENDED CLINICAL CARE INTENSITY CODE|
|B||Age, see INTENDED AGE GROUP|
|C||Sex, see SEX OF PATIENTS CODE|
|E||Number of days open only during the day, see WARD DAY PERIOD AVAILABILITY CODE|
|F||Number of days open at night, see WARD NIGHT PERIOD AVAILABILITY CODE|
Thus Home Leave on Psychiatric Census Date would be:
|7199999||Home Leave (non-psychiatric)|
|7299999||Home Leave (psychiatric)|
This data element is also known by these names:
|plural||WARD TYPE AT PSYCHIATRIC CENSUS DATE|
