FGM Enchanced Dataset - Data Provision Notice

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 (the Act) gives the Health and Social Care Information Centre, now known as NHS Digital and hereafter referred to by this name, statutory powers, under section 259(1), to require data from health or social care bodies, or organisations that provide health or adult social care in England. Data will be required, where it has been Directed to establish an information system by the Department of Health (DH) or NHS England (NHSE).

When a direction is received, NHS Digital can issue a Data Provision Notice to the appropriate providers of the required data who are then legally required, under section 259(5) of the Act, to provide the data in the form, manner and period specified below.

This Data Provision Notice is for data required to support a direction from DH to NHS Digital for the collection of data in relation to the treatment of patients with female genital mutilation (FGM) in the NHS.

These data are being collected to ensure that adequate information is available to support the commissioning and planning of services. The work forms part of the FGM Prevention Programme, a wider change programme aiming to improve the NHS response to FGM and actively support prevention.
