NELA Data Requests and Collaborations

NELA is currently collaborating with many organisations analysing data of patients undergoing emergency laparotomy for specific projects. The aim of NELA is to provide high quality comparative data from all providers of emergency laparotomy to facilitate improvements in care for patients.

Although NELA is run by the Royal College of Anaesthetists, we also work in conjunction with the surgical Royal Colleges and specialty organisations in addition to collaborating with other projects and key stakeholders.

The document below contains NELA Collaborations and accepted data requests. For each project, we list a title, contact name, information and a lay summary. This will be updated on an ongoing basis.

We hope that this a valuable resource for you to see how NELA data is being used. If you are interested in one of the studies listed below, please contact us via
