NHS Comparators is designed to help NHS organisations improve the quality of care delivered by benchmarking and comparing activity and costs on a local, regional and national level.

  • aimed at commissioners and providers
  • contains around 200 comparators (including Maternity, A&E, Inpatients, Outpatients, QOF, PbR, and GP Survey)
  • get an overview of care pathways to help identify where improvements can be made
  • drill down by speciality and programme budget category for many comparators
  • free to NHS users and designed to be used by all not just information specialists
  • now available to a www audience. Contact us to apply for access

NHS Comparators is designed to offer a standard view of national data and should be supplemented by information available in local systems. It complements facilities available from commercial organisations who offer more tailored products and services.
