Programme overview

The National Cardiovascular Audit Programme (NCAP), brings together six major cardiovascular domains into one national clinical audit. The programme covers six domains: Adult Cardiac Surgery, Congenital Heart Disease, Cardiac Rhythm Management, Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP), Heart Failure and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).

The aim is to provide the opportunity to review 50 years of developments in diagnostic procedures and therapeutic advancements in cardiovascular medicine and surgery, as well as the way that service delivery has changed over time. These changes have brought about more effective and efficient care for patients and improved outcomes.

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.
