‘Where to look’ packs – September 2019

Where to Look packs with 2017/18 data are now available to share. The packs cover the main NHS programme budgeting categories including cardiovascular disease, respiratory, mental health and cancer and are personalised for each clinical commissioning group (CCG) and Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).

As most health conditions are linked to demographic factors such as deprivation and age, RightCare compares systems to their closest demographically similar peers. This is to provide realistic comparisons taking into account the need for healthcare of different populations.

By using this information each system will be able to ensure local plans focus on those opportunities which have the potential to provide the biggest improvements in health outcomes, resource allocation and reducing unwarranted variation and health inequalities.

Several updates have been made to the packs since the previous publication to allow further detailed interpretation of the data presented.

For CCG packs, these updated are:

  • Outpatient and long stay patients: This pack contains long stay and outpatient attendances data which has not been presented previously. This allows an increased focus on primary care intervention.
  • Quality and outcome charts: The opportunity table in previous Where to Look packs has now been replaced by programme specific outcomes charts, showing a more detailed overview of opportunities across the CCG.
  • New pathways: Includes pathways for heart failure, influenza and groin hernia.

For STP packs, these updates are:

  • CCG opportunity charts: Previously in STP level packs, the data was not shown at CCG level at any point. In this pack, for each STP level opportunity chart there is a corresponding CCG level chart to show how opportunities are split across the CCGs within the STP.
  • Outpatient and long stay patients: This pack contains long stay and outpatient attendances data which has not been presented previously. This allows an increased focus on primary care intervention.
  • Quality and outcome charts: The opportunity table in previous Where to Look packs has now been replaced by programme specific outcomes charts, showing a more detailed overview of opportunities across the STP and its CCGs.
  • New pathways: Includes pathways for heart failure, influenza and groin hernia.
