The Clinical Audit Support Unit (CASU) is a provider of national clinical audits, formerly known as the National Clinical Audit Support Unit (NCASP).
The CASU service provides a wealth of clinical audit, project management, analytical expertise, informatics and practical experience to any new audit venture.
Our current, varied, portfolio spans across both primary and secondary care and includes diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

- NICE and Professional Guidance
- Commissioning Outcomes Framework
