NHS Atlas of Variation 2011

Published by England’s Department of Health this month, the NHS Atlas of Variation 2011 highlights the amount each Primary Care Trust (PCT) spends on clinical services and links this with health outcomes. Consisting of 71 maps, the Atlas is aimed at helping commissioners in England learn from one other, consider the appropriateness of a service, and investigate when clinical health outcomes are not reflecting the financial investment that has been made.

This is the second year the Atlas has been produced.
