BAUS Data & Audit Programme

BAUS Registries

Data collection for nephrectomy, radical prostatectomy, cystectomy, PCNL and urethroplasty closed on 31 December 2019.  Summary data is available using the links below.  Individual surgeons and unit level outcomes data is no longer published on this website. 

Data collection for Female Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) Surgery closed on 31 December 2020.  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.

PLEASE NOTE: if you wish to utilise any of the BAUS registry data for research purposes, you will need to apply for permission: different data sets require different application forms. Please contact BAUS for the appropriate form.

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The BAUS registries mentioned above have been replaced by a series of snapshot audits that aim to identify best practice in specific areas, and which will fulfil training & appraisal requirements for participation in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

Click here  for more news about the latest updates to the NCIP portal

NCIP is a data driven online portal for hospital consultant surgeons to view their surgical activity and outcomes data for key procedures across different surgical specialties.

NCIP works closely with the Getting it Right First Time (GIRFT) Programme and Specialty Associations to provide individual consultant level outcomes data against local and national benchmarks.  The personal activity data is presented in the form of procedure dashboards, allowing better visibility of data across a range of metrics to support consultant learning and clinical quality improvement.

Urology has been the vanguard specialty for NCIP since April 2021.  BAUS has worked closely with NCIP to develop the urological data content and implement the specialty across English NHS Trusts. A total of 106 urology units have been enrolled onto NCIP with over 950 consultant urological surgeons being given access to the portal to view thieir data across 35 procedure dashboards for 5 subspeciaties. 

The NCIP portal has now been integrated into the Model Health System (MHS) with new and improved features to support their appraisal and revalidation and quality improvement activity.
