Benchmarking data for North East PCTs

Benchmarking data is now available for the NHS North East area

The DH respiratory team has taken two approaches to looking for unwarranted variation in respiratory health care:

1.       Benchmarking of all North East PCTs against selected indicators (produced by ERPHO)

2.       Health investment analysis for selected PCTs (County Durham, Northumberland and South Tyneside) using programme budgeting tools (DH)

In addition, a separate analysis of PCTs and acute trusts has been put together by the North East Quality Observatory System.

The respiratory team packs show individual PCTs benchmarked against regional, national and demographically similar PCTs on measures such as spend, mortality, admissions, LOS, prevalence, prescribing, flu vaccination etc.

 The packs triangulate the data from a number of sources and so are robust in providing evidence of variation. By highlighting unwarranted variation, they can be used as a tool to stimulate local dialogue about the quality of care that is commissioned and delivered. Their primary purpose is not to provide answers but to indicate robust questions that local commissioners and clinicians will want to address.

The data sets include individual slide packs for each PCT as well as a summary pack with a narrative to highlight the key messages.

 

Please note: Their primary purpose is not to provide answers but to indicate robust questions that local commissioners and clinicians will want to address.

The data is available both as (large) PowerPoint files (typically 3-4 MB) and also as pdfs, which are smaller files (only 1.5MB)
