Evidence-based interventions

The evidence-based interventions programme has been developed to help make sure patients are not offered unnecessary treatment on the NHS. 

Unnecessary treatments can cause harm to patients, and the programme aims to prevent this.

The programme will initially focus on 17 interventions:

  • 4 that should not be routinely offered to patients unless there are exceptional circumstances
  • 13 that should only be offered to patients when certain clinical criteria are met

This dashboard provides information about:

  • baseline activity figures
  • estimated activity reduction goals

The information is available to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) via ePACT2 and also a public version is available via Catalyst - public insight portal.

The public version of the dashboard has an activity of 5 or below redacted, this is in accordance with the following policy:Department of Health and NHS England statistical policy: disclosure and confidentiality
Further information regarding the evidence-based interventions programme and further guidance for CCGs can be found on NHS England website.

If you're registered, you can access the evidence based Interventions dashboard via ePACT2.

If you are not registered for ePACT2, you can access the evidence based interventions dashboard using the Catalyst - public insight portal.
