Public Health England are currently consulting on proposed changes to the alcohol and drug misuse treatment statistics which would be implemented for the 2018-19 reports to be released in 2019 and 2020.
This consultation will run from 25 July 2019 to 25 August 2019 and is located here:
Our proposal is to create shorter reports with the aim of making them more accessible and appealing to both current users and to a new, wider audience and be focused on:
· notable or changed items
· more frequent and better graphical representation of data such as infographics
· information on trends and geographical mapping
· additional detailed data tables published alongside a separate technical document
This is a public document and everyone is invited to contribute, but the consultation will be of particular interest to:
· alcohol and drug adult community treatment providers
· alcohol and drug young persons community treatment providers
· secure settings drug and alcohol treatment providers
· users of statistics relating to alcohol and drug treatment
· alcohol and drug treatment commissioners and other relevant local authority or NHS-England staff
· alcohol and drug treatment service users

Updated ViewIt now live
We are pleased to inform you that a new enhanced version of ViewIt has been released. The new version will provide all public users with a rich source of local authority level treatment data as well as expanding the data already available to existing registered users.
More about the ViewIt changes
ViewIt has been expanded to include additional filters so users can filter their local data by gender and age group as well as substance category. It also now contains local and national data for ethnicity alongside many other key national statistics data.
The publicly accessible site is largely the same as the restricted site but controls have been placed on the data so low numbers are not disclosed. The data in the restricted site is unsuppressed, but the publicly accessible data has been rounded to the nearest 5 at the lowest granular level (further information available in the information disclosure guidelines at the foot of each ViewIt page).
