The National Cardiovascular Audit Programme (NCAP)
The National Cardiovascular Audit Programme (NCAP), brings together six major cardiovascular domains into one national clinical audit. The programme covers six domains: Adult Cardiac Surgery, Congenital Heart Disease, Cardiac Rhythm Management, Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP), Heart Failure and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).
The aim is to provide the opportunity to review 50 years of developments in diagnostic procedures and therapeutic advancements in cardiovascular medicine and surgery, as well as the way that service delivery has changed over time. These changes have brought about more effective and efficient care for patients and improved outcomes.
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.
