National Data Sets refer to sets of data that are published publically online via NHS England or other sources. Ardens collects this data once it has been published and imports it into various Ardens Manager dashboards for organisations to track and monitor in one central place. 


Please see the below ingested data sets, when we expect the data and the date parameters of the data: 

Data SourceExpected Data ReleaseDate Parameters of Data

PCN Workforce (PCNW)Last Thursday of the MonthPrevious month
Patient Online Management Information (POMI)Last Thursday of the MonthPrevious month


Q: If I update our appointment slots types now will our previous months extracts be updated too?

A: Not that we are aware of, GPAD extracts their data every month and so once the data has been extracted, we do not believe the data is extracted again.
