Total health gain from patients who reported an improvement in health status following an elective procedure. The four indicators cover groin hernia, hip replacements, knee replacements and varicose veins.

Please note that these indicators have been retired as of May 2015. This is because the four indicators reporting the total health gain on separate procedures have been combined into one indicator (Total health gain as assessed by patients for physical health-related procedures) in the 2015/16 NHS Outcomes Framework. This newly combined indicator is currently a placeholder and has yet to be developed.

Indicators 3.1.i to 3.1.iv measure how effectively people are recovering from elective procedures.

There will be no further updates for this indicator.
