“Trusts rated good and outstanding have effective clinical audit processes and ensure that audits are used to drive quality improvements”
Care Quality Commission
“Clinical audit forms the backbone of clinical governance systems in most health service providers today. The main tasks of clinical audit procedures are to establish whether services are being reliably delivered to the required quality standard and, if not, to help improve them. Successful clinical audits collect the relevant data, analyse and understand it, and use it to inform improvement.”
NHS Improvement 2018
