NHS care indicators on new website

  • Comment

Two hundred care quality indicators are to be made available on a single NHS website.

The Department of Health and the NHS Information Centre are encouraging health professionals to use the data as a basis to assess local quality improvements.

These Indicators for Quality Improvement (IQI) have been selected in conjunction with the Royal Colleges after extensive consultation with the NHS.

They will be expanded over the next three to five years to cover the entire range of NHS and social care services that the health service provides.

Said Lord Darzi: ‘This initial list is just the start of an NHS-wide resource that will challenge and stimulate NHS staff to drive up the quality of care they deliver to patients.

‘Throughout my career as a surgeon I have seen the value of having reliable data that allows clinical teams to assess the quality of the service they provide and to constantly challenge themselves to improve.

‘I would encourage all clinicians to visit this site and to begin to use the data to drive up the quality of the services.’
