Welcome to Performance Healthcheck

This interactive online tool will provide comparative data on specific indicators for every NHS organisation, with exclusive performance benchmarking analysis for HSJ readers.

Every month, we will launch a new data set to enable you to view your own performance and benchmark it nationally and against your peers.

Alongside the data, we will provide clear, concise comment on the variations in performance and how this fits within the wider NHS.

Harnessing national data sources, Performance Healthcheck is designed to help you understand how you can do more with less and make actionable decisions.
