The National Clinical Audit of Psychosis (NCAP) was awarded a new contract running from August 2022 - July 2025. The new programme will utilise routine data (e.g. MHSDS in England) from EIP services and performance against key measures will be made available more frequently via an online dashboard. The audit is currently in its development year and a small pilot study will be conducted in 2023. The first round of data collected using this new methodology will be made available in 2024 and an Annual State of the Nations report will also be produced.



The National Clinical Audit of Psychosis (NCAP) was commissioned to conduct an audit which collects a reduced bespoke dataset in 2023. The audit will predominantly collect data that focuses on the questions used to calculate the scores associated with the scoring matrix to ensure that NHS England and Improvement can continue to evidence performance against the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP) whilst the 2024 EIP audit using routine data is in development.
