Data collection for Female Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) Surgery closed on 31 December 2020.  No 2020 data from this registry was published but 2017 - 2019  data can be found by clicking here.  The SUI registry will be replaced by a national registry, following the recommendations of the Cumberlege Report in July 2020.  This registry is being developed by NHS Digital.

BAUS Snapshot Audits

The BAUS registries mentioned above have been replaced by a series of snapshot audits that aim to identify best practice in specific areas, and which will fulfil training & appraisal requirements for participation in national audits, by both trainees & Consultants.

The National Consultant Information Programme (NCIP)

NCIP has created an online portal that enables NHS Consultant Surgeons to review information about their clinical activity and patient outcomes.

The portal provides access to individual outcomes data and unit-level data across a range of surgical specialities.  It is intended to support NHS Consultants in England as part of their personal learning and development.  It provides both local and national benchmarks against which Consultants can review and access their patient outcomes, with the aim of delivering improved patient care.

Urology is the vanguard surgical specialty for rollout of the NCIP data portal to all NHS surgical units in England in 2021.  It is expected that all Consultant Urologists in England will have access to the web-based portal by April 2022

Additional information about the NCIP can be obtained by clicking on the links below to view archived recordings:
