HQIP National Clinical Audit Feedback Mechanism
HQIP quality improvement strategy launched in November 2011
(1) Improving the national clinical audit programme
Need to improve the functionality and effectiveness of the programme and address some issues raised by local and national stakeholders
Feedback mechanism for NCAs launched
– March 2012
Highlighting examples of good practice within national clinical audit projects
Making constructive suggestions for improvement to projects within the Quality Accounts list
Highlighting ongoing or unresolved issues
Technical issues in relation to projects (these should be addressed to the relevant provider)
