The improvement and assessment framework is designed to measure and stimulate improvement in priority areas. NHS England policy leads have set out how they are using their indicator data, what it shows and how they are supporting CCGs and their system partners to make improvements to services and health outcomes for their local populations.
NHS England has updated eight of its general practice indicators. These are for cervical screening (to Q2 2017/18), prescribing (all indicators to Q4 2017/18) and patient list size data (to July 2018). The data also shows where practices have changed category as a result of the updates.
