Programme overview

Part of the National Cardiac Audit Programme (NCAP), the purpose of the audit is to stimulate quality improvement through the provision of comparative information on: the structure and activity of PCI services; the access to, appropriateness and quality of care against national standards; outcome for patients such as complications, adverse cardiac events and death/survival.

The audit utilises the Central Cardiac Audit Database (CCAD) which has developed secure data collection, analysis and monitoring tools and provides a common infrastructure for all the coronary heart disease audits.

NHS England and Improvement have confirmed that on 24 June 2022 the NICOR cardiac audits, currently commissioned by HQIP (and hosted by Barts Health NHS Trust) will be moving to NHS Arden & GEM Commissioning Support Unit. Much of the NICOR cardiac audit work will continue as before. HQIP, Barts and Arden & GEM are all working to ensure as seamless a transition as possible.

As HQIP will no longer be the commissioner or data controller for the NICOR cardiac audits, please contact the NICOR team directly if you have any queries about the transition of the cardiac audits.

Should you require any assistance on the progress of your data access application please contact the NICOR data sharing inbox ([email protected]) and copy in Arden & GEM (on [email protected].

Additional information on all HQIP-commissioned projects is available on the NHS Trusts page, which includes the recommendations repository, infographics compendium, 9 month publication schedule, impact report, and National Clinical Audit and Enquiries Directory.
