Health and Social Care

We are interested in statistics and data concerning the health of the UK population and on the health and care services provided in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Our focus includes information on health care provision, social care provision, health status and disease, disability, cause of death, and health and safety at work and different contexts (personal, social, economic, and environmental factors) influencing health.

To improve the coherence and accessibility of health and social care statistics in England, we have engaged with the system intensively over the past two years, with staff from the Office for Statistics Regulation convening and leading three Round Table meetings and two conferences. Read more about the latest conference ‘Putting users’ needs at the heart of improving health and social care statistics’ in the News and Events section below.

We have published a report on progress made and sent a letter  to producers, setting out a series of recommendations which they need to act on to maintain momentum Progress against these recommendations will be reviewed as part of our 2018/19 Regulatory Portfolio. We will also use compliance checks and assessments to look at statistical outputs and how they are developing.
