Solihull Social Care and Health Profiles and Tools
The NHS Atlas of Variation
The NHS Atlas provides investment, activity and outcome data relating to the whole population in need and not just those who happen to make contact with a particular service. The tool consists of over 100 national maps which help to identify local area variations in the provision, uptake, outcome and costs of healthcare. The tool covers measures relating to the care of both adults and children.
Adult Social Care
Adult Social Care Outcomes
The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) provides benchmarking data on the care outcomes and experiences of local people and helps to identify priorities for local improvement. The individual outcome measures cover four key areas of Adult Social Care service delivery:
- Enhancing quality of life for people with care and support needs;
- Delaying and reducing the need for care and support;
- Ensuring that people have a positive experience of care and support;
- Safeguarding adults whose circumstances make them vulnerable and protecting from avoidable harm.

Read the Solihull Carers Needs Assessment here.
The Carers Survey is conducted every two years and is targeted at carers aged 18 and over and who are caring for someone aged 18 or over. Carers’ opinions are sought on a number of topics thought to be integral to helping them achieve a balanced life alongside their caring role. Specifically the survey seeks to:
- Assess whether services received by carers are helping them in their caring role and their life outside of caring;
- Assess carers' perception of services provided to the cared for person.

Future Care Needs
Two resources developed by the Institute of Public Care (IPC) are designed to help explore the impact that demographic change and the prevalence of certain conditions may have on the future care needs of the local population.
For adults aged 18-64 access these population projections through the Projecting Adult Needs and Service Information (PANSI) website, which includes projections of the future number of residents with a physical disability, learning disability and those with a mental health condition.
For older people aged 65+ these projections are available through the Projecting Older People Population Information (POPPI) website, which includes estimates of the future number of residents with dementia, the numbers likely to require support with mobility, self care and domestic tasks, the likely prevalence of falls as well as ill health and disease prevalence.
