Dumfries & Galloway Health & Social Care

Our Performance and Understanding Data

Monitoring our performance and understanding data and information about the population of Dumfries and Galloway is important in delivering effective health and social care services and making strategic decisions on the basis of evidence.

The Intelligence Team is a network of people with specialist knowledge of data, information and intelligence from across the health and social care partnership.  Together, they monitor changes to the local population, investigate patterns of health and disease and analyse patterns in the use of health and social care services.   The Intelligence Team also helps to compile regular reports that monitor the performance of the health and social care partnership.

The results of analysis are presented in different ways including written reports, presentations, infographics and interactive tools.

Under Public Bodies (Joint Working) legislation, we are required to publish our Annual Performance Report by the end of July each year.
