Abstract

The National Vascular Registry is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) to measure the quality and outcomes of care for patients who undergo major vascular surgery in NHS hospitals in England and Wales. It aims to provide comparative information on the performance of NHS vascular units and thereby support local quality improvement as well as inform patients about major vascular interventions delivered in the NHS. As such, all NHS hospitals in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are encouraged to participate in the Registry. The measures used to describe the patterns and outcomes of care are drawn from various national guidelines including: the “Provision of Services for Patients with Vascular Disease” document and the Quality Improvement Frameworks published by the Vascular Society, and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines on stroke and peripheral arterial disease. This report provides a description of the care provided by NHS vascular units, and contains information on the process and outcomes of care for: (i) patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, (ii) patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy, (iii) patients undergoing a revascularisation procedure (angioplasty/stent or bypass) or major amputation for lower-limb peripheral arterial disease (PAD). In addition, the report presents the findings of an organisational audit conducted in August 2015.
