The Department of Health has published the third edition of the Long Term Conditions Compendium of Information. It is aimed at commissioners as well as health and social care professionals, to provide the evidence for improving care and outcomes for people with long term conditions (LTCs). It updates the second edition of the compendium published in January 2008.
This document contains the latest statistical data on long term conditions, links to the LTC QIPP (quality, innovation, productivity and prevention) workstream and provides data from the ongoing evaluation of the Whole System Demonstrator Programme on telehealth and telecare, which supports the delivery of 3 Million Lives. It also showcases examples of innovative projects across the country where organisations and communities are pushing the boundaries to deliver improvements in LTC care.

Health and social care is a huge and complex area – and the information it generates is even vaster. Navigating through the maze of material to get the information you need is often time-consuming at best and frustrating at worst – from identifying whether the information exists, to finding the right person to explain what it actually all means. This guide is a useful starting point in signposting what health and social care information is available, and where to get it from.
The Regional Repository of Quality Metrics is a Microsoft Access database which can be used to identify useful metrics. The database contains metrics from CQUIN schemes, the Regional Basket of Indicators project (which included metrics from Our Vision Our Future and Safer Sare North East) and Accelerated Solution Events (ASEs). The database will constantly evolve and will shortly be updated to include metrics from the recent Fast Focus Events (FFEs). If you cannot find an indicator in this database which matches your needs then NEQOS will be happy to facilitate a trawl of national indicators. If you need further help please use the advisory service contact details on the NEQOS homepage.

Quality Account is an annual report which each NHS provider organisation publishes and sets out a summary of the quality of NHS healthcare services provided by that organisation in the past year, as well as the priority areas where they are planning to improve quality in the coming year. This spreadsheet is the result of a review into the 2009/10 Quality Accounts for Mental Health Trusts across England. The work was commissioned by Tees, Esk & Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust and input was also received from Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust. In total 59 Mental Health Trust Quality Accounts have been summerised. The format outlined in the Quality Account Toolkit has been used as a template for this analysis.
