The Second Patient Report of the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit Published

The Second Patient Report of the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA) outlining the results, conclusions and recommendations from the audit was published on the 5th July 2016.

Commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership as part of the National Clinical Audit Programme, the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA) report analyses the care received by more than 23,000 emergency bowel surgery patients treated in NHS hospitals in England and Wales between December 2014 and November 2015.

The report offers a series of recommendations to reduce variation in the care of patients undergoing emergency bowel surgery.

The report is available for download from the Reports section of the NELA website
