Summary Paediatric Indicator Table (SPaedIT)

About SPaedIT

GIRFT and NHS England’s Children and Young People (CYP) Transformation team have developed a new data tool to support healthcare providers with elective recovery of CYP services.

SPaedIT brings together provider-level data summarising demand, capacity, flow and outcomes, all in one place in an easily-accessible dashboard. 

Refreshed monthly, the data is available across eight key paediatric surgical specialties and more than 35 metrics, supporting frontline NHS colleagues in the 180 providers treating children in England (specialist centres and DGHs), as well as policy makers and commissioners.

Get started below.

“We know that the Covid-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the lives of children and young people, resulting in significant backlogs in paediatric elective care. The data in the SPaedIT can support NHS teams working with CYP to identify where their issues lie and target improvement work, making sure that the recovery of paediatric elective surgery matches the pace of that seen in adult recovery.”
