2011 Performance Reports

HSE Performance Reports

The Performance Report (PR) provides an overall analysis of key performance data from Finance, HR, Hospital and Primary & Community Services. The activity data reported is based on Performance Activity and Key Performance Indicators outlined in the National Service Plan 2011.

The PR is used by the Performance Monitoring & Control committee (PMCC), the CEO and the HSE Board to monitor performance against planned activity, as outlined in the NSP, and to highlight areas for improvement. The PR also provides an update to the DoHC on the delivery of the NSP.

A Supplementary Report is also produced each month which provides more detailed data on the metrics covered in the Performance Report. This will be expanded quarterly and biannually to report on progress against the Deliverables outlined in NSP 2011.
