Commissioners have been asked to make specific arrangements to monitor waiting times from referral to treatment for children and young people with an eating disorder.
NHS England has requested that baseline data be submitted via Unify from August 2016. Compliance to the standard will be monitored from April 2017. Commissioners will need to assure themselves that provider organisations can submit the required information, and will need to sign off provider submissions. The first collection will be for the first quarter of 2016, with a requirement for CCGs to sign off provider submissions on Unify by 9 September 2016. Guidance and a full timetable will be available on Unify from August 2016
