What is The Directory?
The Directory is an information document for guidance only.
HQIP produces The Directory, an Excel-based document containing high-level information about the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP) and additional projects commissioned by HQIP, plus national quality improvement projects operated by other organisations.
HQIP is not responsible for projects operated by other organisations. Information on these projects is included in The Directory as feedback indicated it is helpful for users to have national projects listed in one place.
The Directory includes information on projects that plan to run during the forthcoming financial year, as well as those that ran during the previous financial years. The FAQs below give further information in relation to trust requirements.
How can The Directory help you?
Healthcare Service Providers may find The Directory useful when preparing their Quality Accounts. The Directory aims to provide a quick, one-stop, high-level source of information.
Where does The Directory information derive from?
The information included in The Directory is supplied by the project Providers. If you have specific project queries, please contact the Provider project manager via the details provided within The Directory.
Further information on NCAPOP published reports, recommendations and infographics are available for download, in single point of reference documents, on the HQIP ‘NHS Trusts’ web page here.
What The Directory doesn’t provide
The Directory is not a comprehensive and detailed portal. It is not meant to replace detailed drill-down and situation specific information that can be found on project Provider websites. It is not a living dynamic document and requires manual updates (& for this reason may not be fully up-to-date at a given point in time).
If you are a Provider of a national clinical audit, enquiry, or other national quality improvement project and would like a programme to be included in The Directory, or to have an existing listing revised, please complete the survey using this link.
