This is one of a series of reports prepared under the provisions of the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 . The Act allows an appropriate authority to request an assessment of official statistics against the Code of Practice for Official Statistics in order for them to gain National Statistics status. This report is in response to such a request from the Secretary of State for Health in response to the Statistics Authority’s Monitoring Review: Official Statistics on Patient Outcomes in England . The report covers the following Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) statistics produced by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and reported in:
• Provisional Monthly Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in England – Headline Figures (PROMs Headlines)
• Provisional Monthly Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in England – Quarterly Report (PROMs Provisional)
• Finalised Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in England (PROMs Final)
This report forms part of a group of assessments of patient outcomes statistics produced by HSCIC, NHS England and the Care Quality Commission (CQC): the NHS Outcomes Framework Indicators, Summary Hospital-level Mortality Indicators, Patient Experience, and Patient Safety Incident statistics.
This report was prepared by the Authority’s Assessment team, and approved by the Regulation Committee on behalf of the Board of the Statistics Authority, based on the advice of the Director General for Regulation.
