Health and Social Care

Last updated on Friday 25 June 2021

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.

Health and social care statistics will continue to be at the forefront of our programme in 2021/22 and we will be looking to the statistics system to demonstrate how they will seek to meet current and future needs emerging from the pandemic. We continue to respond at speed to user concerns about data to support understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic, working with statistics producers to make sure that the statistics produced are timely and meet user needs.

We will focus on mental health statistics and social care data transformation, so that they achieve the prominence of existing statistics about hospital care.

We will continue to 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.
