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 CDS by their constituent components. For CDS message purposes therefore the constituent component INTENDED CLINICAL CARE INTENSITY is required to be separately recorded.

INTENDED CLINICAL CARE INTENSITY is the same as attribute CLINICAL CARE INTENSITY and the values recorded within the CDS messages are the National Codes contained within the definition of CLINICAL CARE INTENSITY, but with the addition of:

71 Home Leave, non-psychiatric
72 Home Leave, psychiatric
