The NHS Outcomes Framework is a set of 64 indicators which measure performance in the health and care system at a national-level. It is not intended to be an exhaustive list of health indicators. Rather, it has been designed to be a set of outcomes that together form an overarching picture of the current state of health and care services in England. Refreshing the NHS Outcomes Framework allows it to become a tool which reflects the current landscape of the health and care system, and to be better suited to face the many challenges that the system faces.

This document asks for thoughts on the current proposals and the long term planning for the NHS outcomes framework. The document asks specific questions on 4 main areas of the framework:

  • Mental health.
  • Children and young people.
  • Health inequalities.
  • Patient experience/safety.

The consultation closed on 12 September 2014.
