JSNA and commissioning

Visit our supporting JSNA page www.yhpho.org.uk/jsna for a complete list of resources.
  • Health Profiles
    ‘At a glance’ description of people’s health in the area and 'spine chart' showing the difference in health between the area and the average for England/Region/SHA for 32 indicators.
    Access the profiles from the APHO website.


  • Needs assessment tools
    A series of reports providing evidence-based information on prevalence, incidence and risk factors affecting children’s health and the provision of healthcare services.
    Access Needs assessments from the ChiMat website.


  • Health Inequalities Dashboards
    Dashboards depicting the progress made in reaching targets in life expectancy and all age, all cause mortality. Further indicators help to give further insight into what may be contributing to local life expectancy figures.
    Access the Health Inequalities dashboards

Tools to support commissioning


  • Diabetes Outcomes Versus Expenditure (DOVE)
    The DOVE tool allows you to compare expenditure on diabetes care with clinical outcomes for a selected PCT, other PCTs with similar populations and all other PCTs.
    Access Diabetes Outcomes Versus Expenditure (DOVE)


  • Spend and Outcomes Factsheets and Tool (SPOT)
    The SPOT tool links health outcomes and expenditure across programmes of care to allow you to assess the efficiency of investment in health.
    Access the Spend and Outcomes Factsheets and Tool (SPOT)


Clinical commissioning tools


  • APHO prevalence models
    Prevalence models for cancer, CVD, chronic kidney disease, COPD, coronary heart disease, dementia, diabetes, hypertension, mental illness and stroke. They help to assess the true needs of a community, calculate the level of services and investment needed. The models can also be used to support case-finding by identifying those areas where detection rates are low and targeting enhanced diagnostic activity on them.
    Access the prevalence models from the APHO website.

  • Cardiovascular disease (CVD) toolkit
    The toolkit provides information and intelligence to improve decision-making for high quality, cost effective services on cardiovascular disease.
    Access the Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) toolkit


  • Child Health Profiles
    Snapshot of child health and wellbeing using key health indicators.
    Access the Child Health Profiles available from the ChiMat website


  • Diabetes Community Health Profiles
    The tool is designed to provide an overview of the key areas of diabetes care and highlight issues for further investigation for each PCT in England.
    Diabetes Community Health Profiles


  • Disease Management Information Toolkit (DMIT)
    DMIT is a good practice toolkit designed to help increase the efficiency of services for children with long-term conditions.
    Access DMIT from the ChiMat website.


  • General Practice Classification Groups
    A set of ten groups of general practices with similar characteristics for all practices in England. They can be used to benchmark practice level indicators and provide a comparison with practices that are likely to be facing similar challenges.
    Find out more about the GP classification groups


  • GP Practice Profiles
    The GP practice profiles enable you to view indicators for your practice and for the practices within your consortia. Indicators include local demographics, estimated prevalence rates, Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) and patient satisfaction with sections on diabetes, COPD and CVD. A beta version containing 2009/10 data are also available that can group practices into consortia.
