The National Congenital Heart Disease Audit (NCHDA) is managed by the National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research (NICOR), is the largest and most comprehensive national audit of its kind in the world and is now in its 16th year. The audit collects data from all centres undertaking congenital cardiac surgery and interventional procedures in the UK.

Among the information provided on the portal are profiles of every congenital heart disease centre in the UK, including the number and range of procedures they carry out and survival rates for the most common types of treatment.

Patients, parents and carers are encouraged to regard the facts and figures in the site as a useful source of information. This knowledge can then be used together with the information they receive from their family doctor and heart specialist in making any decisions on treatment options.

The audit is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership as part of the National Clinical Audit Programme* and clinically led by the British Congenital Cardiac Association and The Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain and Ireland.
