There have been relatively few nationally mandated data standards available and this project aims to provide the most comprehensive view of the routinely collected data. We have been working with providers of community services since November 2014 to develop a set of indicators that can be used to compare the quality of their services.
We've worked in partnership with providers, the Care Quality Commission and NHS England to develop the scorecard.
Providers were engaged in scoping and testing the indicators as well as the design of the scorecard.
Every two months we run workshops to update on developments in community services information and to seek views on the direction of the work.
