Spend and outcome tool (SPOT)

Understand health outcomes and expenditure across all programmes



The Spend and outcome tool (SPOT) gives an overview of spend and outcomes across key areas of business. Local authority and clinical commissioning group data for 2015 have been refreshed. SPOT includes a large number of measures of spend and outcomes from several different frameworks. Similar organisations can be compared using a range of benchmarks and potential areas for further investigation identified. You can download a PDF factsheet for each local authority or clinical commissioning group. There is also an interactive spreadsheet that allows you to explore the data in detail.

The tool allows the identification of areas requiring priority attention where shifts in investment will optimise local health gains and increase quality. Programme budgeting is a method assessing investment in programmes of care rather than services.
