NAD Round 5

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a contract to conduct a further three years of audit, commencing in January 2020. View the NAD Round 5 Timeline overview (PDF) for an overview of audit activity.

Round 5 of NAD in general hospitals will see exciting developments to the audit, as we consult on changing the data set to focus on the highest priority and lowest performing items. We will be working with 20 pilot hospitals in 2020 to identify, test and refine the sampling methodology and measures. Further details of which can be found below.

Round 5 of NAD also includes a spotlight audit on care provided in community-based memory services. See below for more details.

The NAD standards consultation is open until 14 November 2019.
