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 NHSE. 

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The BAUS registries mentioned above have been replaced by a series of snapshot audits that aim to identify best practice in specific areas, and which will fulfil training & appraisal requirements for participation in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 portal open to hospital consultant surgeons, clinical leads, medical directors and responsible officers, with the aim of providing greater visibility of consultant activity to reduce variation in outcomes, alongside identifying good practice to support clinical improvement and patient safety.  More than 2000 hospital consultants across England are already using it.

As well as enabling surgeons to confidentially scrutinise and compare their performance, NCIP can also support with appraisal and revalidation, learning and development, leadership, tracking procedures, research and audit.

Urology was the first specialty to take part in a national rollout of NCIP.  BAUS worked in partnership with NCIP to develop the urological data content and implement the specialty across English NHS Trusts. Vascular surgery, paediatric surgey (general, urology and orthopaedic) and orthopaedic surgey are now also online.  Spinal, upper GI and lower GI surgery will follow in Spring 2024.

A new and improved version of the NCIP data portal was launched in October 2023, and is now availalbe via the Model Health System (MHS), allowing NCIP users to move seamlessly between the portal and MHS.
