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.
The August 2018 release provides new data for the following indicators:
2.2 Employment of people with long-term conditions
2.5.i Employment of people with mental illness
4.2 Responsiveness to inpatients' personal needs
4b Patient experience of hospital care
5.2.i Incidence of healthcare associated infection (HCAI) - MRSA
5.2.ii Incidence of healthcare associated infection (HCAI) - C. difficile
The following indicators have been updated for the 2015 data period. This is to reflect a correction in the data for the live births figure for Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. The error had no affect on the indicator value.
1c Neonatal mortality and stillbirths
1.6.i Infant mortality
