CCG Outcomes Indicator Set - March 2022

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.

This publication is the delayed release of the publication originally scheduled for October 2021.

New data periods or sign-posting have been presented for all indicators where data is immediately available. Indicators 3.15 and 5.1 requires some additional development work due to an update to the Hospital Episode Statistics Continuous Inpatient Spells data, and so are not included in the publication on 31 March 2022. These indicators will be updated at the earliest opportunity and a note will be added to this page to reflect that update.

  • COVID-19 and the production of statistics

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic began to have an impact on Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data late in the 2019-20 financial year, which continued into the 2020-21 financial year. This means we are seeing different patterns in the submitted data, for example, fewer patients being admitted to hospital, and therefore statistics which contain data from this period should be interpreted with care. Further information is available in the annual HES publication:
