‘Where to look’ packs – January 2017

The ‘Where to look’ packs have been updated so that local health economies are basing decisions on more timely data.  The main update has been the inclusion of 15/16 QOF data.  Also, since publication of the October packs a number of data quality issues have been highlighted in the spend data of four CCGs. To ensure robustness of the comparisons made, the four affected CCGs have been replaced within their similar 10 peer groups by their next closest CCG. Some CCGs will therefore see a change to their headline opportunities slide.

The updated packs also contain a new slide highlighting the potential overuse in bed days. Health economies are able to use this information to focus on the opportunity to free up bed capacity, and ask the questions ‘Is this current bed use adding value?’ and ‘Where might we better use this capacity and resource?’.

The four CCGs not having packs due to incomplete spend data for 2015/16 are:

  • NHS Newbury and District CCG
  • NHS North & West Reading CCG
  • NHS South Reading CCG
  • NHS Wokingham CCG
