Public and Patient Reports
For the first time, a version of the 2011/12 Annual Report produced specifically for patients and the public. The report was published on 30 January 2013.
The report has been written in collaboration with patient representatives in an attempt to increase awareness of the audit, particularly in patients with heart failure and their families. It is hoped that this will empower patients and the public to question hospitals that fail to deliver high quality care, resulting in sub-optimal outcomes.

Amendment: The 2009/10 report was updated on 13 December 2010 to correct the participation status of Hywel Dda Health Board and percentage data completeness of Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust in Appendix 1. This changed the overall number of Trusts and Health Boards participating in the audit, as shown in sections 1.3 and 3.1 of the report, from 132 to 133 (from 85 per cent to 86 per cent). All other analysis within the report is unaffected.
The last five editions of the National Heart Failure Audit Newsletter are published below. Three or four newsletters are sent out per year, and they are intended to keep local audit users updated of audit developments and changes.
