The Ardens has produced Ethnicity reports to identify patients with missing and incorrect ethnicity codes. For further, please see the following support article.


The following support article outlines the searches available for practices who wish to filter ethnicity data for Learning Disability patients only.


To locate the searches, navigate to the Population Reporting module > Ardens Searches > 5.7 Ardens Learning Disability Searches > Ethnicity Reports for LD Patients



The 'Read Me...' explains the searches may fail to run if all run in a block, due to the sheer volume of data being searched. In order to ensure they can run at all, we have broken the suite into patients with Ethnicity codes for the 2001/2011, patients with other ethnicity codes and patients with no ethnicity on their record.


If you attempt to run the whole folder and the searches fail to run, please first run each 'search' (the ones with the magnifying glass) and then run the reports. To run the report without re-running the parent search, please click the report and chose 'run':



Choose 'Advanced options':



And un-tick 'Re-run parent searches':



You should then be able to run all of them.


The figure in the % column of the 'NO Ethnicity code' search will show you the percentage of Learning Disability patients in the practice with no record of a correct ethnicity code.


Please note - alerts are available for patients with no recorded ethnicity code when launching the patient's care record, further information on this can be found in the following support article


If you require any further assistance on the process above, please contact Ardens support on: suport-emis@ardens.org.uk
