Mental Health Minimum Dataset
Mental Health Minimum Data Set Overview Text

The Mental Health Minimum Dataset (MHMD) concerns adult patients (including elderly) who receive care in NHS specialist mental health services. This care is delivered within a Mental Health Care Spell. For some patients care will comprise a small number of out-patient attendances over a few weeks. For others, it may extend over many years and include hospital, community, out-patient and day care attendances which may commonly overlap.

The MHMD is assembled and produced for a defined period of time known as the Reporting Period (which may be monthly, quarterly or annually) and comprises a data set record for each Mental Health Care Spell which occurs wholly or partially within the Reporting Period.
