You can display your compliance with or progress towards your service’s metrics using a dashboard. They can be produced as often as required and simple or professionally designed.

You can use Microsoft Office to create your dashboards, using Excel and Word, or another program.

Here are some examples of dashboards from health libraries :

Performance Dashboard August 2018 Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

SaSH July 2018 dashboard

Here are some templates for creating dashboards that you can adapt for local use:
