Programme overview

The NOD Audit will prospectively collect, collate and analyse a standardised, nationally agreed cataract surgery dataset from all centres providing NHS cataract surgery in England and Wales to update benchmark standards of care and provide a powerful quality improvement tool. In addition to cataract surgery, electronic ophthalmology feasibility audits will be undertaken for glaucoma, retinal detachment surgery and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Additional information on all HQIP-commissioned projects including inclusion and exclusion criteria, data collection periods, and reporting dates, is available on the National Clinical Audit and Enquiries Directory.
