Heart: Coronary angioplasty (percutaneous coronary interventions)
Part of the National Cardiac Audit Programme (NCAP), the purpose of the audit is to stimulate quality improvement through the provision of comparative information on: the structure and activity of PCI services; the access to, appropriateness and quality of care against national standards; outcome for patients such as complications, adverse cardiac events and death/survival.
The audit utilises the Central Cardiac Audit Database (CCAD) which has developed secure data collection, analysis and monitoring tools and provides a common infrastructure for all the coronary heart disease audits.
On 24 June 2022, the NICOR cardiac audits transitioned to NHS Arden & GEM Commissioning Support Unit. As HQIP is no longer the commissioner or data controller for the NICOR cardiac audits, please contact the NICOR team directly if you have any queries about the transition of the cardiac audits.
