How we Performed in 2019-20

The Angus HSCP set out its vision for change and improvement in its Strategic Commissioning Plan 2019-22. The purpose of performance reporting is to show progress against priorities set out in that plan and to provide assurance over our arrangements for clinical, care and professional governance, how we manage our finances, and how we develop our workforce.

Relationship to National Outcomes

The Scottish Government set out nine National Outcomes to be progressed through the integration of Health and Social Care. They also set out a set of National Core Indicators aimed at showing progress on integration and by which Health and Social Care Partnerships could benchmark their performance across Scotland.

There is a clear relationship between the Angus Strategic Priorities, the National Outcomes and the National Core Indicators.

NI-11Premature mortality rate per 100,000 persons441 (2015)391 (2015)426375
Premature rates in Angus have improved from our baseline year and continue to be lower than the Scottish average. There is a slight increase inpremature mortality in Angus between 2018 and 2019 which may be related to an increase in drug deaths.

Angus emergency admission rates continues to increase. This is the opposite of the Scottish picture where admission rates are decreasing. Angus continues to perform better than the Scottish average but the variation between Scotland rates and Angus rates continues to reduce.
