MHMDS 4.1 Data Quality Consultation

This consultation is now closed.  

What is this consultation?

We are inviting responses on the proposed changes to the data quality reporting which will be published for version 4.1 of the Mental Health Minimum Dataset (MHMDS).

Why are we having this consultation?

With MHMDS moving to version 4.1 and to support the organisational changes in the NHS from April 2013 there is a need to update the current data quality measures report. It is proposed to make changes to the existing VODIM constructions and to expand the report to include new data consistency measures. This will support more effective recording and analysis to inform work on mental health Payment by Results (PbR) and outcome measures.

How to respond

The consultation will be open from 8st March to 22nd March 2013.  To respond to the survey please follow this link.

If you have a query on completing your response, or  would like to comment without completing the survey please send an email to with MHMDS v4.1 VODIM Consultation in the subject line or call 0845 300 6016 (9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday).
