NHS Trusts

Reports and recommendations 

We publish dozens of clinical audit and outcome reports every year and each report contains multiple recommendations for improvement. To help NHS Trust Boards and commissioning organisations to maintain oversight of those reports for all areas of service delivery, we’ve created this single point of reference for those recommendations. Last update: 23 October 2019.


We’ve also created a single point of reference for the infographics published in all HQIP reports. The individual infographics contain hyperlinks to the corresponding reports. This infographics collation is presented in PDF format. Last update: 10 October 2019.

NCAPOP 9 month publication schedule

This PDF document is a regularly updated nine-month publication schedule for the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP) – covering the National Clinical Audit Programme and also the Clinical Outcome Review Programmes.  Further information is available here.

Impact report

Every project within the NCAPOP has been established to address a clinical area (or areas) where healthcare improvement is required, and the common aim of each project is to have a positive impact on patient care. This compendium provides a summary of some of the key impacts the projects have had. It covers the period June 2017 to February 2019. Impact has been categorised into four categories: national; system; local and public. Further information is available here.

HQIP National Clinical Audit and Enquiries Directory

HQIP maintains the National Clinical Audit and Enquiries Directory to provide information on the National Clinical Audits and Enquiries that are in existence. The Directory is a useful tool in assisting healthcare providers with planning their audit activity each year. Further information is available here.
