This National Indicator Set (NIS) met the then-government's commitment, as set out in the local government white paper "Strong and Prosperous Communities", to introduce a clear set of national outcomes and a single set of national indicators by which to measure them.
For the year 2010-11, the Health and Social Care Information Centre collected information on eight of the indicators which relate to social care and mental health services.
The number of social care indicators has been reduced since NIS was introduced. Specifically, four social care indicators reported on in 2009-10 were removed from NIS for 2010-11:
- NI132 - Timeliness of social care assessment
- NI133 - Timeliness of social care packages following assessment
- NI128 - User-reported measure of dignity and respect in their treatment
- NI136 - People supported to live independently through social services
2010-11 is the last year of the NIS indicators and the Social Care and Mental Health indicators are being replaced by the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework for 2011-12 onwards. NI125, NI127, NI130, NI145, NI146, NI149 and NI150 will appear in the new framework, although there will be some small changes to the definitions.
The social care information provided at council level for all councils with Adult Social Services responsibilities (CASSRs) in England and presented in this report is final and relates to the period April 2010 - March 2011. It supersedes the information published on 21 October 2011.
The mental health information in this report is supplied by NHS trusts providing specialist mental health services. This report includes final 2010-11 data for the two indicators (NI149 and NI150) that relate to people in contact with secondary Mental Health services. It is a copy of the data published on 21 October 2011 which was already final at the time of release.
Promoting Independence and Choice
- NI 125 - The number of older people (aged 65 and over) discharged from hospital where there was the intention to return home was 36,610 of which 30,000 (82.0 per cent) were still at home after 91 days, compared to 81.2 per cent in 2009-10. This percentage is lower for older clients; 78.6 per cent for those aged 85 and over compared to 87.2 per cent for those aged 65-74.
NI 130 - 29.2 per cent of all adults and carers receiving CASSR funded services received them via self directed support, compared to 13.0 per cent in 2009-10. 37.2 per cent of carers who received services were given self directed support compared to 26.6 per cent of adults aged 18-64 and 28.9 per cent of those aged 65 and over.
- NI 127 - The average score for the Social Care Related Quality of Life in 2010-11 was 18.7 out of a maximum possible score of 24. NI 127 this year is a composite indicator calculated using a combination of questions in the Adult Social Care Survey which cover 8 different outcome domains relating to quality of life. It is not comparable with data for 2009-10.
- NI 135 - The total number of carers receiving a carer's specific service or advice and information as a percentage of clients receiving a community based service in the year is 28.3 per cent compared to 26.4 per cent in 2009-10.
