The Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Data Set provides essential data to:
- Ensure a relevant collection of electronic data to support local service development
- Allow monitoring of key policy initiatives and indicators such as: The Public Health Outcome Framework Indicator on under 18 conceptions; increasing access to all methods of contraception, including Long Acting Reversible Contraceptions (LARC) methods and emergency contraception for women of all ages and their partners; reducing teenage conceptions; reducing the rate of unintended pregnancies and modernisation of Sexual and Reproductive Health Services
- Provide appropriate definitions and guidance material to enable a standardised data set from Sexual and Reproductive Health Services
- Support commissioners in understanding which population groups are accessing Sexual and Reproductive Health Services and which SERVICES they are receiving, including the LARC methods as recommended by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), and therefore allowing for long-term commissioning of SERVICES
- Develop, over time, indicators of quality and outcome in SERVICE delivery (especially in comparative reports). For example the removal and length of use for LARC devices, provision of emergency CONTRACEPTION, the provision of CONTRACEPTION post abortion and referrals to secondary care, the comparison of attendance rates for selected care and the diversity of young PERSON provision by Sexual and Reproductive Health Services including social referrals
- Reflect current data collection practices and requirements at Sexual and Reproductive Health Services.
The Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Data Set covers PATIENT contact with the Sexual and Reproductive Health Services whether in a clinic setting, in the PATIENT's home or at an alternative location.
