What we are doing
The Carotid Interventions Audit was initiated in 2005 as a collaboration between the Vascular Society of Great Britain & Ireland and the Royal College of Physicians. Its purpose is to gather information about the pathway of care for patients with carotid stenosis who undergo carotid interventions (either surgery or endovascular stenting). Data allows the audit to follow the patient journey and compare clinical performance with national guidelines for care delivery.
The Carotid Interventions Audit has now moved to the Clinical Effectiveness Unit at the Royal College of Surgeons of England to be part of the National Vascular Registry Project, which is also funded by HQIP.
