Data collection for the 2016 Community Hospitals and Community Services projects is open.
The Community Hospitals project focusses on inpatient care for older people in community hospital settings and covers service models, access, activity, workforce, finance and quality. The project also features a service user audit.
The Community Services project provides the most comprehensive dataset available in the NHS and benchmarks 26 different Community Services. The project focuses on services targeted at children, older people and those who have long-term conditions and covers all aspects of community service provision.
Outputs for both projects include a bespoke report for participants comprising dashboards in an easy-to-use summarised format. Outputs also include an online toolkit highlighting your organisation’s benchmarked position. As very little national data is available in these areas, we would encourage you to participate in the projects. .
Data collection will run until 19th August 2016. To register and input data for the project, members can log in to the members' area. Here you will also be able to view outputs from previous years’ projects.
