Allied Health Professions (AHP) encouraged to collect data on AHP referral to treatment.

Allied Health Professions (AHP) delivering NHS funded services in community, acute and mental health settings were encouraged, from 1 April 2011, to collect AHP referral to treatment (RTT) data for local reporting purposes.

All AHPs delivering NHS funded care are encouraged to base their local data collections, local flows and reporting of AHP RTT data on the Community Information Data Set (CIDS) structure in anticipation of a national mandate for collection and reporting of data.
