NHS launches MyNHS transparency site

Allows public to view performance data and shape services

NHS England logo

The NHS has launched a new transparency website to make existing data on patient safety, efficiency, quality, public health, social care commissioning and hospital food standards more easily comparable and available to the public.

Clinicians, managers, patient groups and campaigners will be able to use the new MyNHS site to find the best performing areas, with the hope this will help improve standards through competition and transparency.

Tim Kelsey, national director for patients and information at NHS England, 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.”

The NHS wants the site to help it hear what the public wants - to this end there is a feedback button placed on every page so that suggestions from the health and care sector can help improve the data over time.

Jeremy Hunt, secretary of state for health, 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.”

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).
