Indicators team

This is a collection of over a thousand indicators that we publish. The information is for clinical staff, commissioners, researchers, and others needing data and evidence to help with decision-making in health and care. A wide variety of subjects are covered, ranging from quality through to population health and the outcome of treatments.

Indicators developed internally

Our Clinical indicators team develop, test, produce and then publish a range of indicators, separated into the following groups.
