The National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA) was one of the excellent audit programmes nominated for the Richard Driscoll Memorial award.
Their case study demonstrates developing first ‘survivors clubs’ for emergency surgery and creating a toolkit to provide other hospitals with the means to engage their patients.
The inaugural Richard Driscoll Memorial Award took place this year in honour of HQIP’s former Chair of Trustees, a passionate life-long ambassador for patient care, who sadly passed away in 2017. The award recognizes HQIP commissioned clinical audits and reviews on the basis of their robust and sustained patient involvement.
