National Adult Community Acquired Pneumonia Audit 2018/19
The BTS National Adult Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) Audit data collection period for 2018/19 runs from 1 December 2018 - 31January 2019 (data entry until 31 May 2019). Previous BTS CAP audits have identified deficiencies and variation in care, and we intend to further investigate outcomes and variation of care in this round by linking data from the audit to HES and ONS data held by NHS Digital.
We have received approval from the Health Research Authority Confidential Advisory Group (CAG) under Section 251 of the NHS Act 2006 to collect patient identifiable data without consent in England and Wales. A copy of the approval letter and audit documentation are available below.
