iView and iViewPlus

Summary

Making data more easily accessible to a wider range of data users than ever before. Access and extract information to meet your own needs - make selections, view comparisons, create tables and generate graphs.

Becoming a user is quick and easy but there are some restrictions on who can access some of the data. If you don't already use the NHS Digital single sign-on system you'll have to register for an account.
