Health and Social Care

Last updated on Monday 22nd May 2023

Our Health and Social Care domain oversees the regulation of statistics concerning the health of the UK population and health and social care services provided in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

We will be looking to the statistics system to improve statistics about performance, by working with statistics producers to make sure that the statistics produced on waiting times and workforce are timely and meet user needs. We continue to respond at speed to user concerns about data to support understanding of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially on mental health and health inequalities.

We will continue our focus on health and social care data transformation and encourage access to data, seeking solutions to the problems that researchers experience when trying to access data. We will also champion the joining-up of data on health and social care with data on other aspects of people’s lives, including crime, justice, education, employment and welfare. We will also continue to contribute to relevant parliamentary enquiries and follow these up with relevant engagement.

Contact our regulators for this domain Anna PriceCaroline JonesSarah Whitehead, and Nisha Bunting for more information.
