NHS Digital publishes over a thousand indicators covering quality through to population health and outcomes of treatments.
The Indicator Portal is a free tool that provides valuable information for health and care professionals.
Commentary documents accompanying selected clinical indicators can be viewed in our data catalogue.
Our Indicator Assurance Service ensures that national health and social care indicators are well defined, and based on good data with clear methodologies.

Indicator Portal Collection
The Indicator Portal is made up of a number of indicators.
We also include an archive of indicators that were previously displayed on the Indicator Portal or produced by the Clinical Indicators team.
These indicators include comparative information about the quality of health services commissioned by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), and associated health outcomes.
The Compendium is a collection of indicators, giving a comprehensive overview of population health at a national, regional and local level.
This framework sets the outcomes and indicators used by the Secretary of State to hold the NHS to account and to encourage health and care improvements.
The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) measures how well care and support services achieve the outcomes that matter most to people. The measures are grouped into four domains which are typically reviewed in terms of movement over time. Data is provided at council, regional and national level.
