Consultation: Mental Health Services Data Set Version 3

Finding myself out of the loop these days on things that do matter, I'm grateful for a query on the Politics of Health Group (PoHG) maillist that prompted me to look around a little at public - mental health and datasets.

I learned that there is a consultation ongoing on the Mental Health Services Data Set Version 3 it opened 19th June and closes 16th July:

A request for changes to the Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) information standard has been submitted to the Data Coordination Board (DCB) by the Community and Mental Health Team (CMHT) at NHS Digital. 
As part of the development and assurance process, a Public Consultation is currently open which seeks feedback on the proposed changes and we welcome you to view draft documents and complete an online survey.
This consultation is now live for a period of 4 weeks and will close on 16 July 2017.
NHS Digital are also working on a new website and seeking feedback.

This matters imho to student nurses (and other learners) who as professionals should have some insight into what data is collected and awareness that they can and should seek to shape what data is collected. As per the Data Protection Act (with reform to follow here too) the key is in the purpose of the data collection and the dataset's title.

While as nurses the focus is on the individual as a patient, client, carer ... and the delivery of individualised, person-centred care this can seem remote from datasets that seek aggregated data on commissioning, referrals, administration, care pathways within and across services and episodes and care.

Given the list of datasets you can then appreciate how and where safe, high quality, integrated, person-centred and holistic care actually happens. It is not just a product of the mental health service for example, or the healthcare system; it is the raison d'etre of the entire health and social care team and their care. Working with patients, carers and the public.
