Wessex Strategic Clinical Network Neurology Intelligence Report

There was a look of incredulity from a patient representative: “How can you possibly develop a neurology strategy without data?” This would seem self-evident to most people, but the simple fact is, there has been relatively little use of data to help support service redesign strategy in neurology.

Things are changing, but until recently service data has been hard to access, and difficult to analyse in clinically meaningful ways. With the help of NHiS Commissioning Excellence and the Wessex CLAHRC, we have used routinely collected Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data, to try and develop a clearer picture of neurology service provision in Wessex.

In this report, we have tried to link neurology data analysis with practical examples of how service delivery has been improved in other areas across the country, so as to encourage and facilitate efforts here in Wessex. It has been challenging to refine the data and present it in a way that is both useful, and easy to interpret. I hope we have succeeded.
