Health Visitors Minimum Data Set


Frequency: Monthly


Background to the collection

The Health Visitors Minimum Data Set has been set up to help support the government's commitment to improve the health visiting service and recruit 4,200 more health visitors by 2015.

The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), collects the Health Visitors Minimum Data Set via Omnibus Survey. Omnibus Survey is a mature online collection tool designed to help NHS, social care and other organisations submit data to the HSCIC with minimum burden on themselves.

Data are collected monthly. Each month, Area Teams are asked to complete Section B and check the number of health visitors taken from ESR (Question 3a). Further information about completing the return can be found in the Health Visiting Minimum Data Set guidance document, which can be accessed via the link to the right of this web page.

This collection is included on the HSCIC's Burden and Advice Service's (BAAS) list of approved collections and will be reviewed as part of a three year review of collections and standards (this is a statutory responsibility of the HSCIC as set out in the Health and Social Care Act 2012).
