Our clinical audits and registries
Clinical audit is a way to find out if healthcare is being provided in line with standards and lets care providers, commissioners and patients know where their service is doing well, and where there could be improvements. The aim is to allow quality improvement to take place where it will be most helpful and will improve outcomes for patients. Registries collect data about the health status of patients and the health care they receive over varying periods of time.
