NHS Performs

NHS Performs is a website which brings together a range of information on how hospitals and NHS Boards within NHSScotland are performing. It aims to provide this information in an easy to access, clear and understandable way. Through NHS Performs, you can access information on:

  • Accident and Emergency (A&E) performance
  • hospital waiting times
  • numbers of cancelled operations
  • healthcare associated infections (HAI)
  • numbers of patients who remain in hospital longer than they need to be (delayed discharges)
  • numbers of hospital beds
  • hospital deaths

Users are able to access information by selecting one of the 41 hospitals in Scotland currently included on NHS Performs.

Information Services Division (ISD) and Health Protection Scotland (HPS) work in collaboration with the Scottish Government to develop the website.

User Engagement Survey

Recently a user engagement survey was carried out and the results can be found in the NHS Performs User Survey Report.

Recent Updates

Following on from the results of the user engagement survey, user feedback has been taken on board and the following updates have been implemented to the NHS Performs website:

  • The addition of 11 new hospitals
  • New indicator data from the Inpatient Experience Survey
  • Cosmetic changes to improve navigation and readability of data
  • Improved background information


We hope that you find NHS Performs easy to use. If you can suggest ways in which to further improve or develop NHS Performs, we'd like to hear from you. Unfortunately we will be unable to respond to individual feedback, however all comments received will be considered as part of any future developments.
