The report for Q1 and Q2 2019/20

Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 summary

In both Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 2019/20, 112 sites submitted to BSR, with 62 sites achieving a case ascertainment rate above 50%. 177 sites submitted to SUS, with 35% achieving more than 50%.

The total number of sites in England submitting data and achieving the 50% case ascertainment rate remained unchanged between Q1 and Q2. However, while the figures are unchanged between Q1 and Q2, the sites who actually submitted do vary between quarters and achievement rates. This includes the following:

  • 111 sites showed improvement in their case ascertainment rate
    • 11 of which achieved the target rate for the first time.
    • 66 sites' achievement rate dropped from their Q1 rate, although 23 of these sites still achieved the 50% target rate.
  • However, there were 14 sites who achieved the target rate in Q1 but failed to do so in Q2, 10 of these failing by under 6%.

We plan to publish the full report on the National Clinical Data Repository (NCDR) in the future. To be informed of when this is available, check on this page or sign up to national tariff updates.
