Programme overview

This audit assesses the quality of the organisation and delivery of multi-disciplinary inpatient stroke health services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It audits the care provided for patients during and after they receive inpatient care following a stroke. The audit encompasses prospectively the details of care for every patient during their inpatient stay (acute and community hospital care) as well as outcomes and interventions during the six months following their stroke, and including the organisation of stroke services.

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.
