latest Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP) report, published
today, contains information about the care provided to 85,000 people with heart
attack by 13 ambulance services and 212 hospitals in England, Wales and
Northern Ireland. It demonstrates sustained high quality care in key indicators
for heart attack patients, identifies areas for further improvement and
continued vigilance, and also highlights the serious impact of smoking on the
age of onset of heart attack.
NICOR are pleased to announce that Barts Health has been awarded the
contract for the National Cardiac Audit Programme (NCAP). This follows
successful negotiations with HQIP for the 2017-20 National Cardiac Audit
contract extension. The programme will be hosted at the Barts Heart
Centre, one of Europe’s largest clinical cardiac treatment centres. The contract
will start on 1 July 2017.
NICOR will initiate a temporary moratorium on the processing of new third party data access requests from 1 May to 10
July 2017. This is to ensure the correct governance arrangements are in
place to support the onward sharing of data.
