The SSNAP Clinical Audit is continuous, longitudinal audit which measures the processes of care provided to stroke patients in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland up to 6 months post stroke admission.
SSNAP reports each reporting period so that timely information on stroke care is made available for clinicians, commissioners, patients and the public. Over 95% of expected stroke cases are now submitted to SSNAP making the results disseminated are meaningful and robust.
The Clinical Audit results are presented using innovative reporting techniques so that results are easily accessible and can be used to drive improvements to stroke services.
The clinical audit has been running since July - September 2013.
Reports changed from quarterly to every 4 months from April - July 2016.
Results are available at national, regional, team and CCG/LHB/LCG level.
