The Clinical Outcome Review Programmes (previously known as confidential enquiries), are designed to help assess the quality of healthcare, and stimulate improvement in safety and effectiveness by systematically enabling clinicians, managers and policy makers to learn from adverse events and other relevant data.
The programmes aims to complement and contribute to the work of other agencies such as NICE; CQC, the Royal Colleges and academic research studies with the aim of supporting changes that can help improve the quality and safety of healthcare delivery.
The Clinical Outcome Review Programmes are commissioned by HQIP on behalf of NHS England, DHSSPS Northern Ireland, the Health Department of the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

Child Health Clinical Outcome Review Programme - Current Commissioning, procurement and tendering process
HQIP has been instructed by NHS England and the funding bodies of the health departments of the devolved administrations of Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the crown dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man to re-tender the Child Health Clinical Outcome Review Programme.
The first stage in the commissioning of this programme is the development of high quality service specifications against which tender returns can be invited. The specifications need to reflect the funding body policy drivers and commissioning requirements for the programme. In addition they will also reflect the Clinical Outcome Review Programme Independent Advisory Groups recommendations for the programme informed by lessons learned from the delivery of the programme to date and proposed future direction.
The overall aim of the Clinical Outcome Review Programme specification development meeting is to provide advice to allow HQIP to determine the key elements of the programme to support the development of the service specification.
