Community Contraceptive Services Collection (KT31)

ROCR Licence: ROCR/OR/2115/003MAND

Frequency: Yearly

Background to the collection

The coverage of the KT31 return includes individual face-to-face patient activity in services provided by Trusts in clinics and non-clinic venues (such as domiciliary visits / outreach).

Also included are those services provided by non-NHS clinics funded wholly or in part by the NHS (such as Brook).

Not included are health promotion activities (e.g. school sessions) and services provided by consultants in outpatient clinics or those provided by general medical practitioners.

Future for KT31

A quarterly collection known as Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Data set (SRHAD) was introduced 1April 2010 and has been running alongside the KT31 return.

SRHAD is collected quarterly and is an attendance level return. It is electronic rather than paper-based. IT system suppliers should be adjusting or developing their systems and working with Providers to modify the software and validate that the new reports are accurate.

The SRHAD provides more detailed data about contraception and sexual health, which can be used for a range of users needs as well as for national reporting. NB. Clinics are expected to work towards submitting SRHAD from 1 April 2014 as the 2013-14 KT31 data collection will be the last year it will be collected.

Further information on SRHAD can be found by clicking on Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Data set from the list on the left hand side.
