Each June, NHS England requires all health service providers to submit an annual report about the quality of their services from the previous financial year: a Quality Account. Within the Quality Account, providers are required to report on participation in any of the National Clinical Audits (NCAs), Clinical Outcomes Review Programmes, and registries that feature on the NHS England Quality Accounts List.
They are also expected to review the publications produced by the NCAs featured in the Quality Accounts List and report on any resultant actions that they have taken. This page provides information on the Quality Accounts and Quality Accounts resource.
To assist health service providers, patients and commissioners, HQIP has developed an Excel-based resource of all known NCAs, Clinical Outcomes Review Programmes and registries that plan to run during the forthcoming financial year, and that ran during previous financial years. This is linked below and includes the NCAPOP audits and registries and non-NCAPOP audits detailed within the Quality Accounts List, as well as those NCAs that are not detailed on the Quality Accounts List. The resource can be filtered to help Trusts ascertain which programmes are relevant to their Quality Account.
If you are aware of any NCA, Clinical Outcome Review Programmes, or registry that is running but not included in the Quality Accounts resource please provide details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each autumn HQIP undertakes a scoping exercise which informs the following year's Quality Accounts List. The List is usually published in December. If you feel that an audit that was not included on a previous List should be included on the subsequent List, please provide details to email@example.com
