Understanding the NHS Safety Thermometer

The latest version of the NEQOS Safety Thermometer Tool has been distributed to subscribers.

The Safety Thermometer Tool from NEQOS uses national Safety Thermometer data published by the HSCIC and presents this by Trust across the North East & North Cumbria (NENC) area, providing comparisons between peers as well as with the national average, with breakdowns by service areas for detailed analysis.

The Safety Thermometer is designed to act as a ‘temperature check’ and therefore is useful to  look for improvement, the NEQOS analysts incorporate trends over time, allowing subscribers to identify periods of improvement as well as areas that may be  declining over time.

If your organisation is interested in receiving this or any other services from NEQOS then please contact us here, or email us at neqos@cntw.nhs.uk.
