The NHS Outcomes Framework 2014 to 2015 presents the outcomes, and the corresponding indicators, which are to be used for holding NHS England to account regarding improvements in health outcomes. The updated NHS Outcomes Framework includes a report on progress to date and information on the development of the indicators.
“This version builds on the previous versions and contains measures to help the health and care system focus on measuring outcomes. It provides an update on the progress that has been made to develop existing indicators and describes how the NHS Outcomes Framework works in the wider health and care system”.
