Background to the consultation

The HSCIC publishes around 90 series of Official Statistics and National Statistics each year. Use of health and care statistics helps those involved to manage the system more effectively, commission better services, understand public health trends in more detail, develop new treatments and monitor the safety and effectiveness of care providers.

The HSCIC Strategy 2015-20 sets out that over the next few years we are committed to analysing and making openly available data, statistical information and insights about the health and social care sector in ways which better meet our user needs. However, these changes come at a time when spending on central services is being squeezed, and we must better prioritise our current services.

We are therefore proposing a series of changes over the next three years which will help us to better prioritise resources from our stretched budget while developing our statistical products to better meet the needs of our users. We are making the changes necessary to enable us to produce high quality statistics suited to support a modern health and care system and help Britain make better decisions.
