Making clinical audit data transparent

In his transparency and open data letter to Cabinet Ministers on 7 July 2011, the Prime Minister made a commitment to make clinical audit data available from the national audits within the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme. As part of this commitment, the results of hospitals that participated in the National Audit of Dementia have now been published. 

What information is being made available?

Casenote audit results, by participating hospitals in England, and in England & Wales. These data do not include any data about individual patients nor does it contain any patient identifiable information. 

Using and interpreting the data

The data presented in this file requires careful interpretation, and the information should not be looked at in isolation when assessing standards of care.
