HQIP announces transparency strategy

26 January 2012

HQIP announced a strategy for meeting the government's transparency agenda regarding the process and outcomes of clinical audits. Rigorous new guidelines have been developed for carrying out NCAPOP audits, to enable lay individuals to access and understand audit results. Reporting will be at Trust level in most cases but may be more granular - as far as members of clinical teams. To support this level of reporting, HQIP will launch a search portal for audit participation and case ascertainment, and a feedback system for NHS staff to highlight potential areas of improvement for ongoing audits.
