Summary

The NHS Outcomes Framework provides national level accountability for the outcomes the NHS delivers; it drives transparency, quality improvement and outcome measurement throughout the NHS. It also sets out the national outcome goals that the Secretary of State uses to monitor the progress of NHS England. It does not set out how these outcomes should be delivered, it is for NHS England to determine how best to deliver improvements by working with Clinical Commissioning Groups to make use of the tools at their disposal.

Key facts

The May 2016 release includes one new indicator, new data points for eight indicators and some presentational changes.
 
The following indicator is being published for the first time:
2.7 Health-related quality of life for people with three or more long-term conditions
 
The eight indicators with new data points are listed below:
1c Neonatal mortality and stillbirths (formerly indicator 1.6.ii)
1.4.i One-year survival from all cancers
1.4.ii Five-year survival from all cancers
1.6.i Infant mortality
2.2 Employment of people with long-term conditions
2.5.i Employment of people with mental illness (formerly indicator 2.5)
4.6 Bereaved carers' views on the quality of care in the last 3 months of life
5.6 Patient safety incidents reported (formerly indicators 5a, 5b and 5.4)
 
There are three data files with presentational changes only. The deprivation quintile labels have been re-ordered for the following indicators to align them with the rest of the framework. Quintile 1 is now the most deprived rather than the least deprived:
3.5.i Hip fracture: Proportion of patients recovering to their previous levels of mobility / walking ability at 30 days
3.5.ii Hip fracture: Proportion of patients recovering to their previous levels of mobility / walking ability at 120 days
 
A new column has been added to the below data file to show the names as well as the codes for the provider breakdown:
4.1 Patient experience of outpatient services
 
Where possible, historic deprivation data in the NHS OF indicators will be revised using the latest Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) published in 2015. This will be done in stages at the same time as new data points are released. Deprivation data have been re-stated for the below indicators in this release. The scale of the changes is discussed in the IMD 2015 Updates section of the commentary report.
1c Neonatal mortality and stillbirths (formerly indicator 1.6.ii)
1.6.i Infant mortality
