Dataset Language
This file contains most of the Heath and Community services (both current and planned) across the county, both those provided by the Council's Health and Community Services Department and Private and Voluntary Services that may support our citizens.
(There is no way for Hertfordshire County Council's Health and Community Services Department to know about all of the care services that may be provided by private organisations in the county.)

This file has been created as a way to organise the many different services that may work across different sites, as well as the sites from which several services may run.
The services that have been recorded include: Each of these resource types have different specifications and categories (please see full information below), and these may or may not be broken down to different layers in the HCS viewer.

Care services have been categorised as looking after different needs by the ACS Commissioning Team, Mark Janes and Geoff Sharpe. Each site can cater for more than one need.
