Programme overview

The Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP) was established in 1999 in response to the national service framework (NSF) for coronary heart disease, to examine the quality of management of heart attacks (myocardial infarction) in hospitals in England and Wales. Part of the National Cardiac Audit Programme (NCAP), the audit aims to improve the quality of care and outcomes of patients who have heart attacks. It aims to improve the whole pathway from the call to the emergency services, to the prescription of preventive medications on discharge from hospital. The audit describes aspects (process measures) of the quality of care of hospitals and of ambulance trusts and is based on analyses of data that have been directly submitted by the participating organisations.

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. For further information about this project, please contact the project team directly using the contact details listed in the ‘Supplier Info’ section above.

Clinical Outcomes Publication (COP)

Clinical outcomes publications provide quality measures at individual consultant, team and unit levels using national clinical audit and administrative data. This project is one of a number of National Clinical Audits who publish these types of data on their website for patients and the public to view; see the project website link above. For an overview, see HQIP’s clinical outcomes publication webpages.
