2013/14 Quality Accounts list
19 December 2012
HQIP is pleased to publish the list of national clinical audits to be included in NHS providers' 2013/14 Quality Accounts, on behalf of the Department of Health. Using HQIP's Quality Accounts Resource, providers can plan their programme of national audit participation for the next financial year, knowing which audits will need to be reported on.
HQIP has added new features to its Quality Accounts Resource to provide further support for providers planning their 2013/14 programme:
- Data collection information for all audits where available
- Geographical coverage of the audits
- The care setting of the audits
- Unique codes for NCAPOP audits to aid their identification
The resource also includes information for those planning their 2012/13 Quality Account submission. This includes which audits need to be reported on and which audits published their annual reports in 2012 - therefore requiring providers to act on these by the end of March 2013.
All health service providers have to submit their report for June each year about the quality of their services in the previous financial year. Quality Accounts are required to be submitted to the Secretary of State and published on the NHS Choices website so that they are available to the public.
