MyNHS transparency website goes live

MyNHS will bring together data from across the health and care system to improve transparency and will link to existing data that has already been published on topics like patient safety and public health.

MyNHS will bring together data from across the health and care system to improve transparency and will link to existing data that has already been published on:

  • patient safety
  • efficiency
  • quality
  • public health
  • social care commissioning
  • hospital food standards

The website is a joint project between the Department of Health, NHS England, Public Health England (PHE), the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). The site will be developed and improved over time by gathering feedback from users. There is a feedback button on every page so that suggestions from the health and care sector can help improve the data and metrics over time. More data from CCGs, GP practices, clinicians and mental health trusts will be added at a later date.

Clinicians, managers, patient groups and campaigners will be able to use the data to highlight the best performing areas and improve standards through competition and transparency.

National Director for patients and information at NHS England Tim Kelsey said:

The NHS is a global leader in openness and transparency. MyNHS is a big step forward towards our transparency vision, bringing together data from across the health and care system for the first time and presenting it in accessible, understandable and meaningful way. Healthcare professionals, commissioners, regulators and members of the public can then use this data to drive improvements in patient safety and quality – keeping patient outcomes at the heart.

Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt said:

MyNHS is a powerful new tool that will give professionals across the healthcare system the opportunity to learn from each other and improve their services. This is the next step of the journey we are taking to create the most open and transparent healthcare system in the world.

MyNHS has been developed with the support of professionals across the healthcare sector.
