Children and Young People's Health Services (CYPHS) Data Set

About this information standard

This release introduces a change to the information standard ISB 1069, formerly approved by the Information Standards Board (ISB).

The CYPHS data set is a patient level, output based, secondary uses data set which will deliver robust, comprehensive, nationally consistent and comparable person-based information for children and young people who are in contact with CYPHS. As a secondary uses data set it intends to re-use clinical and operational data for purposes other than direct patient care. It defines the data items, definitions and associated value sets to be extracted or derived from local systems.

This information standard is published under section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. An Information Standards Notice (see below) provides an overview of scope and implementation timescales, and the Specification and Implementation Documents provide further detail for those who have to implement the information standard.

Update 16 July 2015: The latest release (SCCI1069 Amd 11/2014) was published on 20 April 2015.  Since then an error has been identified and the Corrigendum lists the error and the correction; this should be read alongside the Requirements Specification and Implementation Guidance. The corrigendum will be incorporated in the next release of this information standard.
