COVID-19 update

COVID-19 Update

We are aware of the immense pressure that the COVID-19 pandemic will place on stroke services in general and routine stroke data collection in particular. On the 2 April 2020, NHSE and the Welsh Government agreed the following stance:
All national clinical audit, confidential enquiries [commissioned / funded by NHSEI] and national joint registry data collection can be suspended. Analysis and preparation of current reports can continue at the discretion of the audit provider, where it does not impact front line clinical capacity. All audit data that can be collected during this pandemic will give insights into how Coronavirus has impacted in other areas such as:

  • elderly patients (hip fracture, dementia, heart failure)
  • those presenting for emergency laparotomy
  • those with cancer and diabetes to name but a few

Child death database, PICANET and MBRRACE-UK perinatal surveillance will be required for current clinical management and should continue. You can refer to the full letter from HQIP online here https://www.hqip.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Final-HQIP-Letter-COVID-19_update-02-04-2020.pdf

SSNAP update
Results for R27 have now been returned to teams, with further outputs to follow shortly. Over the coming weeks national results will be made available to teams and later, subject to sign-off from funders, publicly available. We will provide updates over the coming weeks on what reporting outputs will be available and when they will be available. 

SSNAP will be reporting interim data during the COVID time period on a monthly basis. Listed below are the dates that we plan to take a download of data for analysis of the previous month's data.  We encourage teams that are able to enter data, whether through the full or minimum dataset, to enter and lock data by these dates for inclusion in analyses. We will also be producing quarterly reports and so any data entered after these deadlines will be included in future analyses. 

April admissions, deadline: 15 May
May admissions, deadline: 12 June
June admissions, deadline: 17 July

These deadlines are not compulsory and we will not be chasing teams to meet these deadlines, as we would typically with the routine data-locking deadlines. 

As always, the Helpdesk is open so please direct any questions to SSNAP@kcl.ac.uk
