Admission of Patients to Mental Health Facilities, 2011-12
Statistics include data up to 31 March 2012. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 26 October 2011.
Changes to the KP90 data collection form and guidance were made for 2008-09 to take into account changes to the Mental Health Act 1983 made by the Mental Health Act 2007. These changes may affect comparisons with data for previous years.
- In 2011-12 there were 10,773 admissions (excluding place of safety detentions) to mental health facilities in Wales, down from 11,198 in 2010-11.
- 98 per cent of the admissions (excluding place of safety detentions) in 2011-12 were to NHS facilities in Wales, with the remainder admitted to independent hospitals.
Formal admissions under the Mental Health Act 1983 and other legislation
- 1,428 were admitted in 2011-12 under the Mental Health Act 1983 (excluding place of safety detentions) and other legislation compared with 1,717 in 2010-11.
- 92 per cent of formal admissions (excluding place of safety detentions) were detained without the involvement of criminal courts (Part II) just over two thirds of these (68 per cent) being admitted for assessment, with or without treatment (Section 2 of the Mental Health Act 1983).
Supervised community treatment
- In 2011-12 there were 377 patients subject to supervised community treatment (SCT), including 20 for whom an independent hospital was responsible. Of this total, 237 were male and 140 were female.
- Of those patients subject to SCT, there were 109 recalls to hospital, 79 revocations and 121(r) discharges in 2011-12.
(r) Revised from 114 during November 2012, due to a resubmission from Cardiff and Vale University Local Health Board. The resubmission has affected the final bullet point on page 1 and two numbers in Table 3b in the release - revised data has been marked with an (r). See Key Quality Information in release for more details.
The original release was published on 24 October 2012. Due to further analysis and user demand, we identified some quality issues with the place of safety detention data in Tables 4a and 4b (which has been collected since 2008-09) and has been provided by mental health facilities in Wales. This release has been revised to include some footnotes and key quality information around the concerns with this data – please see the Key Quality Information in the release for more details.
