Future Development

Burden Reduction Plans

The Burden Advice and Assessment Service worked closely with arm's length bodies to support the development of Burden Reduction Plans for 2016-17 and continue to oversee these plans on an annual basis. The plans set out how each arm's length body plans to reduce the burden they place on the health and social care system in England.

Burden Impact Assessment Tool

NHS Digital has worked with data providers to design and implement a simple tool to encourage providers and commissioners to work together consider the potential burden of any data request at a local level.

The tool is currently in spreadsheet format, to allow for the concept to be piloted. If users find it useful we can look to further develop the product as a web-based tool.
