MINAP annual report 2014
19 December 2014
HEART ATTACK CARE – Mortality rates for STEMI fall by a third over 10 years as
most patients with STEMI receive timely primary PCI, but only half of patients with
nSTEMI achieve the NICE quality standard for timely angiography
The 13th Public Report of the Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP)
contains information on 80,724 patients with heart attack and the care provided to them
by 13 ambulance services and 212 hospitals in England, Wales and Northern Ireland,
between April 2013 and March 2014.
Data published today shows that more patients having a STEMI heart attack have
access to the nationally recommended treatment, within the approved target time.
Results also show that more patients are surviving these heart attacks. In the last ten
years, the proportion of patients who have died within 30 days of their heart attack has
fallen by a third: from 12.4 % (2003-04 ) to 8.1% in 2011/14. Mortality reported by
MINAP is in agreement with that seen in clinical trials internationally, which suggests a
very good standard of treatment for this type of heart attack in Britain.
