About Service Planning and Performance Reports

You can generate a range of reports to support service planning and performance on different themes at various geographic levels, such as clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), local authority, and Primary Care Trust (PCT).

Save time by using these ready-made reports presenting the available data and evidence which you can copy and paste into your own presentations and reports and enhance with local data and interpretation.

You can generate the following reports:

Topical Reports

The following reports are available:

  • Early Years
  • Key risk factors indicating harm or poorer developmental outcomes in children
  • Reducing unintentional injuries in and around the home among children under five years
  • Reducing unintentional injuries on the roads among children and young people under 25 years
  • School-Age Children
  • Youth Justice


QIPP Resource Packs

Looking at a range of indicators and evidence, these reports will help you identify opportunities to improve the quality and value of local services for mothers, children and their families in your area. The reports for your area focus on opportunities to improve secondary care while placing this in the wider context of issues such as child poverty and health behaviours.

QIPP Resource Packs are available for the following themes:

  • Child Health for primary care trusts
  • Maternity for primary care trusts


Service Snapshots

Service Snapshots provide a summary of demand, risk factors, provision and outcomes for services in a particular area.

Service Snapshot reports are available for the following themes:

  • CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health services) for local authorities and CCGs
  • Disability for local authorities
  • Infant mortality and stillbirths for local authorities and CCGs
  • Maternity for primary care trusts
  • Obesity for local authorities
  • Teenage pregnancy for local authorities
  • Vaccination and Immunisation for local authorities


Needs Assessment Reports

The Needs Assessment Reports provide appropriate evidence-based information on prevalence, incidence and risk factors affecting children’s health and the provision of healthcare services.

These reports support you in undertaking needs assessments as part of children’s and young people’s planning and joint strategic needs assessments. They also help you to develop a business case, justify investment, initiate conversations around service improvements and carry out a service review or local audit.

Needs Assessment Reports are available for the following themes:

  • Child and adolescent mental health (CAMHS) for local authorities and CCGs
  • Children and young people with disabilities for local authorities
  • Continence in children for local authorities and CCGs
  • Demographic profile for local authorities
  • Maternity for primary care trusts
  • Mental health in pregnancy, the postnatal period and babies and toddlers for local authorities and CCGs
  • Speech and language for local authorities

The following short guide provides more information about using the Needs Assessment Reports and interpreting the information they include.

We also provide guidance and links to relevant data sources, tools and documents to help health visiting students when undertaking a local needs assessment as part of their university course.
