General Practitioners

Country of origin: UK

The Benchmarking Tool, developed by the Child and Maternal (CHiMat) Health Intelligence Network, presents a selection of indicators that are most relevant to the health and wellbeing of children and young people in an easily accessible way to support local decision making. The Child and Maternal Health Intelligence Network was established in response to the recommendations of the Children and Young People’s Health Outcome Forum: an independent group of experts from local government, the NHS and charities advising the Government on improving services and outcomes for children and young people. The Benchmarking Tool brings together and builds upon health outcome data from the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) and the NHS Outcomes Framework (NHSOF).

Indicators relating to children and young people already published within these frameworks have been included in the initial release. As the Outcomes Frameworks are updated, the changes will be reflected in the Benchmarking Tool. The Outcomes Forum also recommended a number of important additional indicators and increased detail for some existing indicators. Supplementary information will be added as relevant data becomes available. A development schedule will be published shortly. Data will be made available at both local authority and clinical commissioning group level where possible. Development of additional indicators will be considered as part of the formal refresh processes for the NHS OF and PHOF.

The Children and Young People’s Benchmarking Tool will inform local discussions and encourage improvements in services and health outcomes for children and young people.
