Benchmark Results - Interact with Data Reports from Rounds 1-4 (2009 to 2012)

The results for the fourth round of the benchmark are the first to be accessible in a way that allows individual services to be identified.  This is a significant step and the services deserve credit for their openness in agreeing to this - but they believe that they not only demonstrate that the services are improving, but also show that access to a doctor is much easier and faster than is often the case for patients approaching their own practice.  The results are presented in a way that allows the user to interact with the data, choose and define different comparator groups HERE.   Through this tool it is also possible to download individual reports and commentaries on each service.

An overall report can also be downloaded HERE.


You can also access the presentations from the earlier rounds of the benchmark here;
