Programme overview

The National Asthma and COPD Audit Programme (NACAP) for England, Scotland and Wales aims to improve the quality of care, services and clinical outcomes for patients with asthma (adult; children and young people) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

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.

Accessing data

Data collected on behalf of HQIP by all NCAPOP projects is routinely reported and these reports are available in the ‘Latest resources’ section. The reported data is also placed on the website. Data is also placed upon MyNHS and NHS Choices.

For details of how to apply for data that is not in the public domain, please see HQIP’s data access webpages.
