National Cardiac Audit Programme 2017-20 to be hosted by Barts Heart Centre


NICOR are pleased to announce that Barts Health has been awarded the contract for the National Cardiac Audit Programme (NCAP). This follows successful negotiations with HQIP for the 2017-20 National Cardiac Audit contract extension.  The programme will be hosted at the Barts Heart Centre, one of Europe’s largest clinical cardiac treatment centres. Quality Improvement will focus heavily in our new programme of work and we will be working closely with UCL Partners, an organisation that has successfully delivered improvement programmes. We will also have continued links with UCL via the Department of Statistical Science who will be providing statistical oversight, advice and input into the development of risk models.

The transition of the current audit programme to Barts Heart Centre from UCL is due to take place on 1 July 2017. We will be in touch with more information and details of new contacts shortly. Please note as we are already situated at Barts we do not anticipate any disruption to the data collection service.

The year ahead will be an exciting time for NICOR, and we very much look forward to working with Barts Health, UCLP and UCL.
