CCG outcomes tools

The CCG outcomes tool and explorer which provide interactive access to key data for CCGs have been updated and the latest versions can be found below.

The main changes in the July 2014 update are:

Functionality has been added:

  • A box containing summary metadata is now shown in the bottom left corner
  • Numeric prefixes (as used by the HSCIC) have been added to indicator names
  • The comparator areas box now shows the regional and England values (where available)

Data – new data has been added for the following indicators:

  • New data on % population shares (Oct 2013)
  • (Provisional) comparative clusters of CCGs
  • New data on prevalence data from QOF (2012/13)
  • Prevalence of peripheral arterial disease and osteoporosis from QOF added
  • 1 year survival cancer from all cancers
  • Liver disease mortality
  • Quality of life for people with long term conditions

The Local Authority packs have been revised and updated. Originally published in December 2012 as a set of information packs for CCGs and Local Authorities they set out key data to inform the local position on outcomes. The Local Authority packs present high-level comparative information on the NHS, the Adult Social Care and the Public Health outcomes frameworks. The 2012 Local Authority and CCG packs are still available to view as individual pdf documents.

Access the Tools

There are two views of the data:

  • The CCG outcomes tool allows users to view maps, charts and tables of individual outcome indicators across CCGs, and to view a spine chart of all the outcomes for one or more CCGs.
  • The CCG outcomes explorer allows the user to explore the relationships between two outcomes or between demographic information and outcomes.

Each view is available using Flash and HTML5. The flash version offers slightly greater functionality and will work on older browsers, but requires a Flash plugin to be installed and is not supported by devices such as Apple iPads. The HTML5 version works across most devices with newer browsers, including many mobile devices.

A help file is included within each version.

We aim to update these tools following releases of future data at CCG level. The expected release schedule is published by the HSCIC: see CCG Outcomes Indicator Set.

In the longer term the functionality in these tools may be absorbed by the Integrated Intelligence Tool.
