1. Context

The National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes provide a strategic framework for the planning and delivery of health and social care services. They focus on the experiences and quality of services for people using those services, carers and their families. More information about the outcomes is available at: http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2015/02/9966/downloads

Integration Authorities will be responsible for planning and delivering a wide range of health and social care services, and will be accountable for delivering the National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes. Each Integration Authority will be required to publish an annual performance report[1], which will set out how they are improving the National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes. These reports will all need to include information about the core suite of indicators, supported by local measures and contextualising data to provide a broader picture of local performance.

This paper outlines the core suite of indicators, summarising the rationale for inclusion and information on the proposed definition and data source for each indicator in section

3. Several of the indicators will measure progress towards more than one of the National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes. All of the outcomes and indicators are considered as important as each other, and so the suite needs to be considered as a package and not a set of individual unrelated indicators.
