Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Audit

Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) is a prevalent condition that affects 20 – 30% of women of a reproductive age. The Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Audit was commissioned in England and Wales between 2010 – 2015 as part of the centrally-funded National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP). It was managed by the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG).

The audit examined the care received by women with HMB and assessed patient outcomes and experience of care. The audit consisted of an organisational audit of acute NHS providers in England and Wales and a prospective audit of patient-reported outcomes for women with the condition.

Further information including details of the project delivery and the reports can be found on The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) website.
