Planned Care

The NHS Benchmarking Network’s Planned Care project aims to provide a strategic overview of Planned Care within the NHS. The project covers data on commissioning arrangements and hospital inpatient and outpatient metrics, split by Treatment Function Code (TFC). The project outputs supplement the data already available to commissioners within this area.

This project is for all commissioners. Subscribing members will receive:

  • 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

2018/19 Benchmarking Project

The 2018/19 project had 22 Clinical Commissioning Groups and University Health Boards participate.

2019/20 Benchmarking Project

The commissioner project is not taking place in the 2019/20 work programme, but the Network welcomes members that would like to share their good practice in this area.
