NDTMS – Delivering CDS-P – April 2020

ILLY is a national provider of the LINKS CarePath therapeutic case management system. We are entrusted to support the ILLY community which is comprised of both Adult and Young People’s services focused on helping them recover from the harm caused to themselves and their families by substance misuse.

Our role is to provide safe and secure systems that is compliant and trusted as we continue to make a real difference within our communities.

Today we are sharing with you the upgrade to LINKS CarePath v2020. It evolves key aspects of the system, including Safeguarding and the new NDTMS CDS-P reporting.

What is CDS-P and how does it impact you?

Public Health England are continuously refining the substance misuse datasets to ensure effective monitoring of treatment outcomes, and subsequently guide the Government’s drug and alcohol strategy using this data.

This new dataset is Core Data Set version P (CDS-P) which has been designed to further develop the collection of data and information which is used by both PHE professionals and commissioners, responsible for driving their local community improvement strategies.
