Open to specialist providers, participants have a 360 degree view of their services, providing insight to support operational service improvement, and strategic development at a senior level. The NHS Benchmarking Network project compares the main service portfolios of specialist LD providers and quantifies the nature and shape of services provided and the NHS Improvement project focuses on organisational governance, service quality, patient and staff views of service delivery.
This project is for all providers of Learning Disabilities services. Subscribing member organisations who participate in this project will receive access to:
An interactive online toolkit, allowing you to benchmark your service across hundreds of metrics
A bespoke dashboard report outlining key metrics, and highlighting your reported positions
A high-level report outlining key messages nationally
Free attendance at annual conferences, accessing presentations on project key findings, from national policy leads and members
Good practice case studies on how members use the benchmarking to improve service delivery
