NEW NHS Outcomes Framework 2015 to 2016

The NHS Outcomes Framework provides a national overview of how well the NHS is performing, is the primary accountability mechanism between the Secretary of State for Health and NHS England, and improves quality throughout the NHS by encouraging a change in culture and behaviour focused on health outcomes not process.

The Outcomes Framework was developed in December 2010, following public consultation, and has been updated annually to become a tool which reflects the current landscape of the health and care system, and to be better suited to approach the many challenges that the system faces.

This new document released in December sets out the updated NHS Outcomes Framework for 2015/16 and is being published alongside the mandate to NHS England for 2015/16.
