BAUS Data & Audit Programme

In recognition of the impact of audit on the revalidation process and in conjunction with Dendrite Clinical Systems, BAUS has developed an online web-based database for the collection of all the BAUS datasets as a service to our members.  

This opens in a new browser window and requires a separate login (see below under "Access for BAUS members").

Log into the secure BAUS Data & Audit System  

If you wish to utilise any of the BAUS data for research purposes, you will need to apply for permission.

Different data sets require different application forms. Please download the appropriate application form below:

When you have completed the appropriate form, and return it by post to the contact address on the form.

For frequently-asked questions about the data & audit process, view the FAQ document and for more information about monitoring outliers, see the dropdown boxes below.

Data collection for nephrectomy, radical prostatectomy, cystectomy, PCNL and urethroplasty closed on 31 December 2019.  2017-2019 data for these registries was published in 2020.  Data collection for Female Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) will close on 31 December 2020.  No 2020 data from this registry will be published but 2017-2019 data for this registry was published in 2020.  The SUI registry will be replaced by a national registry, following the recommendations of the Cumberlege report in July 2020.  This is being developed by NHS Digital.

The registries are being 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 trainees & Consultants.

Access for BAUS members

For security reasons, it is not possible to give members access to the data and audit system directly from the BAUS website. Because the audit databases hold identifiable patient information, we must use a very secure system to protect these data; this means that users need to have a separate login to access the data and audit system.

All full members were emailed login details for the new system on 24 April 2015; the username is usually your first initial and surname (lower case), i.e. the same as for the BAUS website, but your password will be different. 

On appointment to Full Membership of BAUS, all newly-appointed Consultants are sent a login to the system; this consists of your username and password. If you have lost or forgotten your password, click on the forgotten password link on the Data and Audit homepage and you will be offered an option to reset it.

If you are experiencing difficulties or have lost/forgotten your password, please use the "forgotten password" link in the system or contact Sarah Fowler (BAUS Data and Audit Manager) using the on-line form.
