Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder Access and Waiting Times Experimental Statistics, Q4 2016/17

Details

The data collection is an interim aggregate experimental data collection which will run until data of sufficient quality are available from the Mental Health Services dataset (MHSDS). The dataset has been approved to run up until the end of 2016/17. The MHSDS will collect data that allows the calculation of CYP ED waiting times from April 2017, however there are likely to be issues around the quality of the initial data.

Official statistics are produced impartially and free from political influence.
