National Clinical Performance Indicators (NCPI)

In light of changing clinical demands and services, national clinical performance indicators for ambulance services were developed to provide a focus on clinical indicators as an alternative to indicators based primarily on response times. The NCPI programme has been running since 2007 and as a Trust we submit data so that a national report on the progress on the national clinical performance indicators can be produced for four clinical areas: Asthma, Hypoglycaemia, Paediatric Care and Trauma Care.

Cycle 11 and 12 reports are available in the table below:

The Clinical Governance Team and Clinical Leads, utilise the NCPI data, to develop the NWAS quality improvement programme and NWAS CPIs. Areas of improvement are identified and action plans are implemented to try and improve compliance to specific aspects of care.

Cycle 13 and 14 NCPI programme clinical areas are: Asthma, Trauma Care, Paediatric Care and Elderly Falls.
