Deployment and utilisation progress data


We're responsible for recording data related to the deployment of systems and services across health and social care systems in England. On this page you'll find links to management information dashboards containing this data.

Each dashboard demonstrates the progress of these systems and services in terms of deployment and utilisation across England. 

These dashboards will be updated with the latest figures when the data is available. 

Our dashboards

Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) allows prescribers - such as GPs and practice nurses - to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice in England.

View our EPS dashboard.

NHS e-Referral Service

The NHS e-Referral Service (eRS) combines electronic booking with a choice of place, date and time for first hospital or clinic appointments.

View eReferrals bookings by specialty, referring organisation and provider.

View Appointment Slot Issues (ASIs) in NHS Trusts.

e-RS Paper Switch Off:
From 1st October 2018, providers will only be paid for the activity resulting from referrals made through e-RS. This will support local health communities to plan for the paper switch off (PSO) for elective referrals. The data shown on the following dashboard tracks the progress of NHS trusts in England in achieving e-Referral Paper Switch Off.

Summary Care Records

Summary Care Records (SCR) is an electronic record of important patient information created from GP medical records. 

View our SCR dashboard

We are currently experiencing technical issues preventing us from updating the SCR dashboard beyond October. We are working hard to resolve the issues and hope to be able to refresh viewing figures in the near future

The patient can also choose to include additional information in the SCR, such as details of long-term conditions, significant medical history, or specific communications needs. Currently we can provide data relating to those patients with a moderate or severe frailty that have an SCR with Additional Information.

View our SCR Additional Information for frail patients dashboard. This data is updated quarterly.

Child Protection - Information Sharing

The Child Protection - Information Sharing (CP-IS) project is helping health and children's social care staff to share information and better protect society's most vulnerable children. The project is linking the IT systems used by local authorities and healthcare organisations so that basic child safeguarding information can be shared between them securely.
Visit our interactive implementation maps to find out whether a healthcare setting or local authority is live, or when they plan to go live.


GP2GP allows patients' electronic health records to be transferred directly, securely, and quickly between their old and new practices, when they change GPs. This improves patient care by making full and detailed medical records available to practices, for a new patient's first and later consultations.
