Heart Surgery Governance Tool Launched

1 July 2016

NICOR, the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery (SCTS), and the University of Manchester, has released the SCTS Governance Tool. This new online rescource enables cardiac surgery consultants to access information about their clinical activity and outcomes, which facilitates effective monitoring of data quality and clinical practice. The tool allows selection of time periods and operative groups to generate downloadable reports ‘on demand’, which show analysis based on up-to-date, and 'cleaned', National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit (NACSA) data.

UK cardiac surgery consultants can register using their GMC code and a valid NHS email address via Any queries and feedback should be directed to NACSA project manager, Rebecca Cosgriff.
