National Clinical Audit (NCA) data are collected from all National Health Service providers in the UK, to measure the quality of care and stimulate quality improvement initatives. As part of a larger study we explored how NHS providers currently collect NCA data and the resources involved. Study results highlight a dependence on manual data entry and use of professional resources, which could be improved by exploring how routine clinical data could be captured more effectively.
