The report builds on the first patient report of the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (2015) and details data on over 23,000 additional patients, bringing the total number of patients over the two years of the NELA Patient Audit to 44,000.

Data has been provided from 186 hospitals, representing the overwhelming majority of hospitals in England and Wales that perform emergency laparotomy. The continuing high level of engagement with NELA is testament to the importance that clinicians place on this landmark project, as it drives changes in practice for some of the sickest patients requiring emergency surgery.
