This graphic shows Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire split into the three CCGs, six localities and finally the 16 clusters with deprivation levels shown for each. Deprivation (measured here by IMD 2015) is associated with increased utilisation of local health services.

We can evidence through the stock take project we were part of last year that deprivation is significantly associated with increased A&E attendance and emergency admissions.

We are currently working on a ‘refresh’ of last year’s stock take, now called the General Practice Analytics Review. Reports are being published to practices shortly. Practices will be able to see their position compared to their local and national peers on a huge amount of metrics (practice activity, secondary care, telephony, out of hours, QOF, prescribing metrics, surveys, workforce metrics and more). We also have the ability to deep dive into certain metrics that may be of interest to practices, such as the relationship between deprivation (as seen above) and secondary care activity or practice activity.

Understanding practice activity and demand can inform how they deploy their staff, which in turn can contribute to improved patient access. Clusters and localities will also be given the opportunity to request collective reports. Understanding the similarities and differences between practices can inform collaborative working.
