The NHS Atlas of Variation in Healthcare 2015 is a collaboration between NHS England, Public Health England and NHS Right Care, presenting data for over 100 indicators relating to healthcare interventions and disease. The NHS Atlas highlights unwarranted variation in quality, cost, activity and health outcomes between local health economies, prompting action to improve quality and value.
The full NHS Atlas of Variation PDF (17 MB) presents mapped data for all of England, along with commentary, options for action and links to existing intiatives and resources. The report also presents the full methodology and discusses how the NHS Atlas can be used in conjunction with Commissioning for Value packs and Spend and Outcome Tools.
