Collecting information to improve the quality of care for people with learning disabilties and/or autism.
In summary, the leaflet explains how NHS England collects information to help improve NHS care and treatment for people with learning disabilities and autism. The collection of this information is called ‘Assuring Transformation Data’ and it helps NHS England check that people are getting the right care, in the right place. The information collected will only be regarding admissions into a specialist assessment and treatment hospital for problems related to mental health or challenging behaviour, not general hospital admission. If you wish to opt out of the data collection you can do, and the leaflet explains who to contact to ensure this happens.
