NHS: Statistics

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what sets of statistics relating to NHS services her Department stopped collecting in each of the last five years; and what the nature was of each set. (126035)

The Department is committed to ensuring the value of information collected fully justifies the cost of collection. Whilst ensuring that information required to manage the service, monitor performance and measure activity within the national health service is available. As priorities change, statistical collections are reviewed and may be dropped or revised, or new collections may be implemented.

The Information Centre for health and social care is responsible for the regulation of all requests for information from the NHS by the Department, its associated arms length bodies, other public bodies and the private sector. The Information Centre’s review of central returns (ROCR) process ensures that central collections of information are appropriate to their purpose, do not duplicate existing collections, and minimise the burden on the NHS in submitting the data. More information about the ROCR process is available at:

www.ic.nhs.uk/rocr

Details of NHS collections discontinued from 2002 onwards are shown in the table.
