The Atlases of Variation help to identify unwarranted variation and assess the value that healthcare provides to both populations and individuals. This is produced in collaboration with PHE, NHS England and RightCare and many other organisations. Products include Compendium atlases and themed atlases for areas such as Diagnostic Services and Liver Disease.
A defining aspect of the atlases is that each of the indicator’s maps, column chart and box-and-whisker plot is accompanied by text which provides: the context for the indicator, a description of the variation and trend data, options for action and a list of evidence-based resources to support action. Interactive Atlases services can be accessed via the NHS England website.

National Clinical Procedures Benchmarking Tool
This provides CCGs with the rates of occurrence for 27 different clinical procedures for their local area. The tool allows CCGs to compare themselves with their RightCare similar 10 peer group as well as to the England value. The purpose is to highlight areas where there is significant variation, in order to stimulate conversation about best practice and whether the variation observed is warranted or unwarranted.

A minor correction has been made to the 2nd Atlas of variation in risk factors and healthcare for respiratory disease in England. This correction affects historic data for Map 18d: Mortality rate from pneumonia (all mentions). An updated magnitude of variation statement, box plot and supporting data table have therefore been applied to the relevant documents.
The new 2nd Atlas of variation in risk factors and healthcare for respiratory disease in England has now been launched.
Please provide feedback on the atlases of variation by completing a short online survey Atlas user survey.
