In order to support the calculation of the Care Quality Commission substance misuse performance indicators, we maintain a spreadsheet of the mappings between provider mental health trusts and drug agencies. The current mappings can be viewed by clicking on the spreadsheet.
These mappings were determined through a process of ratification that ran from January to May 2008, during which trusts and SHAs could ask for changes to be made. Trusts and SHAs should notify us of any changes as soon as possible by emailing. The resultant mappings are used to produce aggregate trust metrics that the Care Quality Commission use to measure performance against the indicator: Drug users in effective treatment for PCTs and providers of MH services.
Please note: all mappings relating to the Care Quality Commission's 2009/10 assessment in April 2010 have been frozen and we will not accept any further amendments.
While trusts may wish to notify the NDTMS of any errors or changes to the mappings on the spreadsheet, formal notification of these changes may still be required should the CQC choose to repeat the formal ratification process in 2010. Changes that we are notified of now will however be included in the monthly MHT figures that are released on www.ndtms.net.
