National Mortality Case Record Review programme

The National Mortality Case Record Review (NMCRR) programme aims to develop and implement a standardised way of reviewing the case records of adults who have died in acute hospitals across England and Scotland by improving understanding and learning about problems and processes in healthcare associated with mortality, and also to share best practice. The NMCRR programme is a national collaborative project led by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in partnership with Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network’s Improvement Academy and Datix.
