2014 Consultant Outcomes Publication


MY NHS – NHS Choices has today published the consultant outcomes data for both the National Audit of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (NAPCI) and the National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit (NACSA).

NACSA – This data covers the reporting period 2010 – 2013. The data again shows very low overall mortality rates following adult cardiac surgery in the UK. The data is from 36 hospitals and 307 consultants who submitted data to the NICOR database during the reporting period.

NAPCI – The National Audit of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) assesses percutaneous coronary intervention in the United Kingdom, and for the second year reports the volume of cases performed by operators and by PCI centres. It also describes their case mix and outcomes.

More information on the analyses can be found on the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery and the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society websites.
