Out of Area Placements in Mental Health Services - January 2017


This report presents early findings from the Out of Area Placements (OAPs) collection. The collection is expected to capture the details of all OAPs in England from both NHS and independent providers. This collection is running for an interim 12 month period only to allow necessary changes to the Mental Health Services Dataset (MHSDS) to be implemented. The MHSDS is the chosen mechanism for the long term collection of this data.
