- To identify and categorise risk to ophthalmology patients according to the global trigger tool classification by retrospective review of clinical records.
- To make recommendations for improvement in services, clinical management and documentation
The OGTT allows senior clinicians to become more aware of practice within their clinics by more junior colleagues, and permits comparison between services or at different sites within trusts. It also provides a method for appraisal and revalidation audits for clinicians whose practice does not lend itself to the commonly performed outcome audits (e.g. non-operating consultants).
Championing excellence in eye care and patient safety, the RCOphth encourages all NHS ophthalmology providers and professionals to incorporate regular OGTT audits into their audit programme.
