21 Some useful sources of data are described in Appendix 1. To help local health economies implement either a capitated or year-of-care/episodic payment approach, we will continue to deliver our sector support offer. This includes providing direct support, publishing practical guidance, workshops, webinars and sector engagement. Further information on our sector support offer and guidance material can be found on our mental health payment development webpage. 22 We welcome suggestions on additional material that would support local payment development. 20 Consideration also needs to be given to duties relating to procurement and competition. 21 Note that there may also be a requirement to formally engage or consult with such stakeholders on the proposals as a result of section 242 and/or section 14Z2 of the NHS Act 2006 22

19 Appendix 1: Data sources Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) These data are publicly available and can be accessed by both providers and commissioners via the NHS Digital website. Further information: This dataset includes patient-level information on the number of people who have been in contact with secondary mental health services and associated activity data. Providers and commissioners can use this dataset in addition to the GP registration lists and other data (eg ONS data) to help identify the target population. While this dataset is helpful in providing more granular information on patients who are in direct contact with secondary mental health services, providers and commissioners should take due regard of people who may need care but are not known to, or in contact with, any secondary mental healthcare providers. Figures A1.1 , A1.2 , A1.3 and A1.4 show analysis and output that can be generated using these data. A1.2 A1.3 A1.4 A1.1
