In 2011 separate new topic proposals were submitted for HIV and STI audits to be included in the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP). In response, the National Clinical Audit Advisory Group decided to procure a new combined STI/HIV audit programme. BHIVA and BASHH were contracted by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) to work together to consult stakeholders and develop a proposal setting out the scope for this programme.
The proposal was submitted in January 2013 and procurement is likely to begin later in 2013, allowing the new audit programme to be launched in 2014.
More information about NCAPOP can be found on the HQIP website.
