National quality improvement programmes

HQIP is responsible for several national healthcare quality improvement programmes, including managing and commissioning the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP) on behalf of NHS England, the Welsh Government and in some cases other devolved authorities.

NCAPOP covers two main sub-programmes: the National Clinical Audit Programme and the Clinical Outcome Review Programmes. These two sections contain information about the programmes themselves, plus pages for each individual programme, listed alphabetically. We also have dedicated pages for areas such as Quality Accounts and NCAPOP topic selection: use the drop-down menu, ‘quick links’ below or the search option at foot of page.

Also included here are sections on exploratory work into social care quality improvement and, finally to the National Joint Registry – the largest orthopaedic registry in the world, which is based at HQIP.
