This document contains details of the core NPDA dataset collected since 1 April 2017, and replaces the dataset in use since 2012-13. The dataset has been revised following publication of new guidance issued by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NG18) in 2015. The majority of data items remain unchanged, with a number of new items and some items having been amended in light of the new guidance.
