Guide for use:Help on this term

The actual number of hours is not the number of hours staffed, e.g. a 'group home' would operate 24 hours a day, but might only be staffed a few hours if at all on some days.

Round to the nearest whole hour. Valid numbers are 01 to 24. Services that have no regular daily pattern of operation, or which have different weekday and weekend patterns, should tick the 'no regular pattern of operation through a day' box (e.g. Flexible hours, on call, 24 hour sleepover).

Collection methods:Help on this termIt may be necessary to collect the information separately for week-days versus weekend days or, for individual days of the week if there is no consistent pattern.
Comments:Help on this term

When collected in conjunction with service operation days, and service operation weeks this metadata items can provide useful information on patterns of service delivery.
