Clinical audit

Clinical audit is used to:

  • measure the quality of patient care and outcomes against agreed standards
  • identify how care can be improved if required
  • check whether actions to improve care were successful

The Christie has an annual programme of clinical audit and improvement activity. Topics are prioritised to meet national requirements and manage risks. All services participate in audit activity as part of the routine delivery of care. 

The results of our audits are included in the trust’s annual Quality Accounts.

If you have any feedback or queries about clinical audit at The Christie, please email, Clinical Audit Manager.
