Pulmonary hypertension is a rare disease which occurs at any age, has many causes, and often shortens life expectancy. In the UK, seven hospitals are designated to diagnose and treat pulmonary hypertension in adults, and one hospital for children. The National Audit of Pulmonary Hypertension (NAPH) is a prospective audit of processes and outcomes and has the participation of all eight designated centres. A number of changes and additions have been made in this the sixth annual report, building on the work done previously. These include publication of centre level standardised mortality rates, increased use of statistics by centre, and further investigations into the outcome of pulmonary endarterectomy. This Audit includes England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, Gibraltar and the Isle of Man.
