National Ophthalmology Database (NOD)

National Ophthalmology Database (NOD) Audit Programme

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) was commissioned from 2014 to 2019 by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) to run the National Ophthalmology Database (NOD) Audit Programme as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP). The NOD audit collects data on cataract surgery performed in England and Wales and provides individual surgeons, healthcare providers and the public with benchmarked reports on performance, with the aim of improving the care provided to patients.

The national clinical audit is now independently run by the RCOphth. For more information, please visit or contact the NOD project team via email [email protected] or telephone on 020 7935 0702.
