National Audit

The National Clinical Audit Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP) is managed by Healthcare Quality Improvement partnership (HQIP) and it is a current statutory, mandatory and contractual requirement for the Trust to participate.  Participation is monitored by the Commissioners as part of the contract.  NCAPOP relates to some of the most frequently occurring conditions to assess a national picture of standards of care the patients receive.  Cardiology, Respiratory, and Surgery are some of the key areas. 

The national audit teams provide local Trusts with individual benchmarked reports on their compliance and performance. Recommendations are also provided on how to ensure standards of care in the Trust are improved. 

The requirement is that a Management Summary report and action plan is formulated for each national report published that outlines how relevant recommendations will be implemented.  This supports an environment of continuous quality improvement.
