Summary

The NHS Outcomes Framework indicators form part of the NHS Outcomes Framework, which provides national-level accountability for the outcomes the NHS delivers and drives transparency, quality improvement and outcome measurement throughout the NHS.

Key Facts

** Note (25/02/2014): The following five indicators in this publication were previously incorrect:

  • 1.5 Excess under 75 mortality rate in adults with serious mental illness
  • 2.3.i Unplanned hospitalisation for chronic ambulatory care-sensitive conditions
  • 2.3.ii Unplanned hospitalisation for asthma, diabetes and epilepsy in under 19s
  • 3a Emergency admissions for acute conditions that should not usually require hospital admission
  • 3.2 Emergency admissions for children with lower respiratory tract infections

Due to a technical issue, the 2011-12 data for 1.5 Excess under 75 mortality rate in adults with serious mental illness was incorrect and any reference to it has therefore been removed from the Dec-13 commentary. We are currently investigating this issue, and revised data for 2011-12 will be released once this is resolved.

The four indicators about unplanned hospitalisation and emergency admissions have been corrected on the 25th February 2014. England-level figures for all years have been updated to remove patients treated in England who lived elsewhere. 2012-13 data for local authorities have also been updated. The data included in this publication previously incorrectly excluded patients living in lower super output areas whose boundaries changed between the 2001 and 2011 configurations.

This release sees the publication of new data points for the following indicators:

  • 1a Potential years of life lost (PYLL) from causes considered amenable to healthcare - All
  • 1a.i Potential years of life lost (PYLL) from causes considered amenable to healthcare - Adults
  • 1a.ii Potential years of life lost (PYLL) from causes considered amenable to healthcare - Children and young people
  • 1b Life expectancy at 75
  • 1.1 Under 75 mortality rate from cardiovascular disease
  • 1.2 Under 75 mortality rate from respiratory disease
  • 1.3 Under 75 mortality rate from liver disease
  • 1.4 Under 75 mortality rate from cancer
  • 1.5 Excess under 75 mortality rate in adults with serious mental illness
  • 2.3.i Unplanned hospitalisation for chronic ambulatory care-sensitive conditions
  • 2.3.ii Unplanned hospitalisation for asthma, diabetes and epilepsy in under 19s
  • 2.6.i Estimated diagnosis rate for people with dementia
  • 3a Emergency admissions for acute conditions that should not usually require hospital admission
  • 3b Emergency readmissions within 30 days of discharge from hospital
  • 3.1 Patient reported outcomes measures for elective procedures
  • 3.2 Emergency admissions for children with lower respiratory tract infections
  • 4.7 Patient experience of community mental health services

Further, new breakdowns or additional information for previously published time periods were added for the following indicators:

  • 1.6.i Infant Mortality
  • 2 Health-related quality of life for people with long-term conditions
  • 2.4 Health-related quality of life for carers

The latest Excel and CSV data files, indicator specifications and data quality statements for all indicators are available from the most recent NHS Outcomes Framework publication. A link is provided in the resources section below.
