CCG Outcomes Indicator Set - December 2018

Open data, Official statistics


The indicators aim to provide clear, comparative information for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWBs) about the quality of health services commissioned by CCGs and, as far as possible, the associated health outcomes.

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.
