Data descriptor
ASC Collections Data Dictionary (Beta v1.3)

This relates to requests for support relating to clients who are being referred as a means of preventing admission to hospital. Diversion will include some kinds of falls prevention and falls response services, as well as reablement type services aimed at avoiding hospital admission. It is intended to pick up those referrals made specifically to prevent admission to hospital. CASSRs will have well-defined programmes for preventing admissions, such as reablement.
