The current dataset (version 3.0), which came into effect on 26th March 2012, contains 59 core items, 46 of which are mandatory (i.e. the record will not be saved without them). The additional fields allow us to measure the implementation of NICE Clinical Guidelines and quality standards for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic heart failure.
