Data files and access
We have made the data files from each audit year of the NNAP available for you to download below. They are also available on data.gov.uk.
Data from the NNAP need careful interpretation. They should not be considered in isolation when assessing standards of care. To help you interpret the data, please see our latest annual report and our guides to the NNAP measures for the relevant year.
National Clinical Audit Benchmarking (NCAB) project
NCAB provides a visual snapshot of individual Trust audit data set against individual national benchmarks. It is a collaboration between HQIP and CQC, which aims to enhance the way inspectors, medical directors, local clinical audit teams and others engage, interact with and share clinical audit data.
NNAP submit results for English and Welsh units to this project annually.
