Atlas of Variation 2015 Opportunity Locator tool

The Atlas of Variation Opportunities Locator is a companion tools to the NHS Atlas of Variation 2015. It uses the same data and maps but allows local commissioners to select and view the CCG and Local Authority maps for their own local population  across a wide range of disease areas contained in the Atlas.

The locator:

  • Identifies best performer amongst demographic peers
  • Quantifies extent of benefit if opportunity is taken
  • Links to best practice and guidance

Below are download links to the excel based Opportunity Locator: there is a CCG edition and a Local Authority edition. There is a guide to the use of the tool embedded in the Excel files but we also provide three “Screencasts” walking you through the tools and how this tool relates to the Atlases and other tools.

The Opportunities Locator should be used by local commissioners alongside the Commissioning for Value packs and the Spend and Outcome Tool to inform and direct their pathway improvement efforts.
