Clinical audits and registries

NHS Digital runs clinical audits and registries for the health and care system in England.

We help partners like the Department of Health and the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership compare the performance of health and care services against standards and national trends so that they can improve patient outcomes. Clinical audits and registries are developed and delivered by the Clinical Audits and Registries Management Service, working with clinical specialists, patient representatives and universities. They are commissioned by various organisations, including government, charities and academia.
