NHS England publishes facts and figures about the performance of individual hospital consultants in a number of specialities. The data covers around 3,500 consultants and shows how many times a surgeon has performed a certain procedure or treatment, and, in many instances, includes other quality measures such as length of hospital stay, re-admission rate, complication rate, adverse events and mortality rates.

Publication of the data means consultants’ performance can be compared openly for a given specialty to help spread best practice and identify any issues that need investigating.
