New conditions for clinical audit

HEALTH SECRETARY Andrew Lansley has announced 11 ‘new’ areas of medicine (see panel) whose outcomes for patients will be audited, monitored and regularly published in future.

This brings to 40 the total number of areas of medicine involved in National Clinical Audits. They will measure a variety of different indicators, depending on the clinical area involved, such as mortality, patient’s own feedback, and hospitals’ success in making sure patients get the right treatment quickly.

The publication of clinical audit data is a key element of the DoH’s commitment to greater transparency, says Andrew Lansley. “It means patients can make better informed choices. It means specialists can compare themselves with the best and learn the lessons. And it means GPs can commission services from specialists who have learned those lessons.”

The 11 new clinical areas selected for clinical audit are:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Emergency Laparotomy
  • The National Vascular Registry
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Healthcare for individuals with learning difficulties
  • Specialist rehabilitation for patients with complex needs
  • Chronic kidney disease in primary care
  • Ophthalmology
  • Breast cancer
  • Rheumatoid and early inflammatory arthritis
  • Healthcare for individuals with sexually transmitted diseases and HIV
