Clinical audits and Registries

The Health and Social Care Information Centre are commissioned to run clinical audits and registries by a number of organisations including the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership, Department of Health, and Royal College of Surgeons.

The unit works collaboratively with clinical specialists to develop standard audit information systems and functionality for data collection, validation, analysis, reporting and dissemination in both primary and secondary care.

Our audit results allow national health organisations to compare their performance against specific standards and national trends, enabling them to deliver better care for their patients.
