Summary

The NHS Outcomes Framework (NHS OF) is a set of indicators developed by the Department of Health and Social Care to monitor the health outcomes of adults and children in England. The framework provides an overview of how the NHS is performing. This report provides information about the indicators updated in this release.

Update January 2019:

There is an ongoing review by NHS Digital of emergency readmissions indicators across the frameworks, many of which have not been published since 2014. Phase one of this review involves the publication of two indicators in early 2019: CCG Outcomes Indicator Set indicator 3.2 and NHS Outcomes Framework indicator 3b – Emergency readmissions within 30 days of discharge from hospital.

The release for these indicators will occur in March 2019.

A summary paper providing further details of the review is available in the resources section below.
