Scotland has some of the best health service data in the world. Few other countries have information which combines high-quality data, consistency, national coverage and the ability to link data to allow patient-based analysis and follow up. The Information Services Division (ISD) is a division of National Services Scotland (NSS), part of NHS Scotland.
This dataset provides a consultant-led activity where a consultant retains overall clinical responsibility. The consultant is not necessarily physically present for each patient’s appointment, but he/she takes overall clinical responsibility for patient care.
The main specialty of the consultant retaining overall clinical responsibility is recorded using the appropriate main specialty code along with their consultant code. A treatment function code will be recorded where the activity is delivered in a treatment function.
The main specialty code is used by the secondary uses service to identify Consultant-Led Activity.
ISD(S)1 provides routine quarterly aggregate information for monitoring activity in hospitals, and activity carried out in health centers and clinics in National Health Service (NHS) Scotland. Information collected that relates to hospital beds, inpatients, outpatients, day cases, day patients hemodialysis patients, ward attendees, patients seen by AHP’s (Allied Health Professionals) and other technical department staff and cancellations.
Outpatients (SMR00) collects patient-based data on new appointments at outpatient clinics in all specialties (except A&E and Genito-Urinary Medicine). There is provision to record data on return attendances. SMR00 is used for calculating waiting times for outpatient appointments, analysis of DNA (did not attend) rates, and analyses of procedures carried out. SMR00 returns for new outpatient appointments are approximately 99% complete (at as July 2018) for the financial year 2017-18.
