National Clinical Audit Programme

NCAPOP (National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme) is a set of national clinical audits, registries and outcome review programmes which measure healthcare practice on specific conditions against accepted standards. These projects give healthcare providers benchmarked reports on their performance, with the aim of improving the care provided. Most of these projects involve services in England and Wales; some also include services from Scotland, Northern Ireland and other regions.

Below are links to information on each audit project, designed for all with an interest in them: patients, clinicians, audit professionals, and the audit partners which HQIP commissions to deliver each project.
