Quality Measurement Framework


NHS National Services Scotland ISD Scotland & NHS National Services Scotland


In addition to the latest national figures on the current status of the twelve Level 1 Quality Outcome Indicators, results by equalities (such as gender, age group, sexual orientation, disability, religion, ethnic group) and deprivation (Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation on the Scottish Government website) are available for a number of indicators. Note that the level of analysis available varies for each indicator depending on the data available. Where data do not permit the breakdown by equalities groups, it will be a priority to collect these.

To view results by equalities and deprivation for each indicator, select from the corresponding links below. Note some links navigate to external websites (Scottish Government, Health Protection Scotland and National Records for Scotland) according to where the results are published.
