Consultation description

We are asking for thoughts on our current proposals and our long term planning for the NHS outcomes framework. The document asks specific questions on 4 main areas of the framework:

  • mental health
  • children and young people
  • health inequalities
  • patient experience/safety

Feedback will be used to update and improve the NHS Outcomes Framework.

The NHS Outcomes Framework measures performance in the health and care system and presents a national-level narrative on how the NHS in England is working.
