NICOR sits within the NCCPO (the National Centre for Cardiovascular Preventions and Outcomes), which is in turn part of ICS (the Institute of Cardiovascular Science).
Currently a large part of NICOR’s funding comes from the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), acting for the Department of Health (DH) and its National Clinical Audit Advisory Group (NCAAG). NICOR also receives funding from the British Heart Foundation (BHF), the George A Moore Foundation (GAMF), the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) and the East Midlands Specialised Commissioning Group (EMSCG) on behalf of the SCGs across England.
