The 2012/13 BTS National Respiratory Audit annual report is available to download here
The 2011/12 BTS National Respiratory Audit annual report is available to download here.
The audit tools are available outside the National Audit Periods for local use (and will allow users to compare their local data with the national picture, but this local data will not contribute to the national dataset). Summary reports for each National Audit are available via the links below. Individual reports are accessed via the audit website and are only available to those institutions that have successfully submitted data.
You need to register before you can use the BTS Audit Tools. Once registered you will have access to all the audits you request and will not need to re-register for subsequent audits.
