Making clinical audit data


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 Trusts that participated in the National Clinical Audit of Psychosis have now been published.


What information is being made


Case note audit results, by participating Trusts in England. 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.


What does the data cover?

Casenote audit data submitted by individual Trusts in the National Clinical Audit of Psychosis. The data were measured against a checklist of standards for each round of the audit.

The data contained in this CSV file were first published in July 2018 in the NCAP Core Audit 2017-2018 report ‘National Clinical Audit of Psychosis – National report for the core audit’. Data are provided at a Trust level and relate to patients that were living in the community on the ‘census date’ (1 July 2017) and who had a diagnosis of either schizophrenia or schizo-affective disorder. This is to make the findings comparable with both rounds of the National Audit of Schizophrenia (reporting 2012 and 2014).
