Data news from AAAQIP

Who receives the NVDvHES data feeds in your hospital?

Outputs are sent on a quarterly basis to all trusts performing AAA and Carotid surgery outlining their data contribution rates to the National Vascular Database (NVD). This information is sent to the vascular lead and clinical governance lead in each trust. To find out who this is in your unit Download Vascular leads UK wide.

AKI dataset is currently under analysis

We would like to thank all those who have taken the time to enter AKI data into the NVD for AAA patients. The data is now under analysis and final outputs will be available late summer. We believe that collection and entry of AKI data provides added value to patient care and so continual submission of this data is encouraged.
