Contributing surgeons and centres must validate their cataract audit data on the NOD audit website before 1 June 2017

18 May 2017

Following the analysis of the first prospective audit data collected on cataract operations from 1 September 2015 to 31 August 2016, contributing surgeons and centres will be able to view their data on the NOD audit website prior to inclusion in the Audit annual report and the Clinical Outcomes Publication.

The NOD team encourages all contributing surgeons and centres to check their data by 1 June 2017, ahead of the report publication. Please inform as many of your colleagues as possible to check their individual data on the NOD audit website. If we do not hear back from you by 1 June 2017, we will assume you agree that your results are accurate.

If you are already registered to use the NOD website, please log in with your details and your data will be available for viewing in the analysis section of the website. If you are yet to register, please do so with an NHS email or doctors.org email address via this link, https://www.nodaudit.org.uk/account/register.

If you have any concerns about your trust or individual surgeon data, please send an email to noa.project@rcophth.ac.uk.

Please note that only the individual consultant outcomes will be published on the NHS Choices website for the Clinical Outcomes Publication (COP) programme. Individual trainee outcomes will not be published publicly but will be included within the overall results for centres. Independent surgeons and associate specialists will be named in the audit report and their outcomes will be available on the NOD website.

In case you are unsure, to find out if the NHS trust / surgical centre where you have been working has contributed data during the data collection period, please contact noa.project@rcophth.ac.uk.
