Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder Waiting Times

Background

The Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder (CYP ED) Waiting Times data contains information on the number of children and young people who have accessed, or are waiting for NICE-approved treatment following a routine or urgent referral for a suspected eating disorder.

The Mental Health Services dataset (MHSDS) included data regarding children and young people’s mental health from January 2016. The data collection is still experimental, with a focus on data quality and completion. Anticipating poor quality data in the early stages of the MHSDS, NHS England implemented an interim data collection via Unify2 that focused on the referral to treatment waiting time element of the Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder (CYP ED) evidence based care pathway. This interim measure enabled collection of data and is helping to verify and improve the quality of statistics derived from the MHSDS.

Data for this collection is available back to Quarter 1 2016/17.
