Detail

Potential Years of Life Lost (PYLL) from causes considered amenable to healthcare (NHS OF Indicator 1a) is one of the key outcome measures that NHS England has asked CCGs with NHS England Area teams to include in five year strategic plans (2014/15 to 2018/19).

The Potential Years of Life Lost by disease group tool assists clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in identifying the broad mortality groups that currently contribute dis-proportionately (relative to England) to the overall PYLL rate. These groups are CHD, stroke, pneumonia, amenable cancers and other amenable causes. Those with a healthcare public health remit in local authorities may want to work with CCGs to ensure that interventions planned to influence PYLL rates take into account the local disease specific trajectories. The technical guide clarifies the diseases in each group considered amenable to intervention – those grouped under ‘other’ are far ranging including diabetes mellitus and tuberculosis to asthma and influenza.
