National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcome programme – Reporting

Published: 07 Nov 2018

The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) commissions, on behalf of NHS England and the Welsh Government (the funders), the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcome Programme (NCAPOP). This is a unique, world leading resource, designed by clinicians, commissioners and patients providing both quality assurance (QA) and quality improvement (QI) of the services that the NHS offers. QA has always been fundamental, and remains so, but as the programme matures, QI is becoming more important and HQIP are working with funders and clinicians to ensure that the programme maximises the QI opportunities. As the programme grows in stature, we are working to ensure delays are minimised, and that the multiple improvement messages get to those who are best placed to enact the recommendations. This is not a static process and both the funders and commissioners, plan to keep this process under constant review so that we and our patients get the most out of the programme yet have the results disseminated, and acted upon, as speedily as possible.
