Understanding activity pie charts
What does the Consultant activity pie chart show?
The Consultant activity pie charts represent the total number of elective (planned) finished consultant episodes (FCEs) and non-elective (emergency) finished consultant episodes. A finished consultant episode usually represents the care of a single patient from admission to discharge.
Please note that for Consultants who provide both adult services for patients older than 17 years and paediatric services for patients 16 years old and younger there are two outcome reports.
Understanding mortality funnel plot charts
What does the Consultant funnel plot chart show?
The Hospital Consultant mortality funnel plot represent the total number of elective (planned) finished consultant episodes (FCEs) and non-elective (emergency) finished consultant episodes. A finished consultant episode usually represents the care of a single patient from admission to discharge.
The mortality presented here is for three years: April 2014 – March 2017. Please note that for Consultant who provide both adult services for patients older than 17 years and paediatric services for patients 16 years old and younger there are two outcome reports.
The horizontal yellow line represents the national average mortality. The solid black lines above and below the yellow line are the control limits. The upper control limit represents the highest expected mortality rate. The Consultant's outcome is highlighted in magenta.
