NICOR: National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research


Adult cardiac surgery

The National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit (NACSA) collects data on all major heart operations carried out on NHS patients in the UK. The audit is managed by NICOR, with clinical direction and strategy provided by the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgeons (SCTS) and the Project Board. 

The NACSA is part of the National Clinical Audit Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP), which is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and funded by NHS England.

More information on the NACSA can be found in the ‘About’ section.
