HQIP impact report 2022 published

In addition, we’re focusing in greater detail on four audits in a collection of in-focus short reports, looking at how they demonstrate impact. The audits are: National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA), Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA), National Bowel Cancer Audit (NBOCA) and National Osephago-Gastric Cancer Audit (NOGCA).
