The SSNAP clinical audit is continuous. It collects data prospectively on all patients in England and Wales admitted to hospital following a stroke, from admission to 6 months after stroke. The audit covers the pathway across providers by transferring the electronic record on a password protected webtool. The webtool has been developed to measure against evidence based processes and outcomes of care. Data are of very high quality and completeness, which enable analysis at both team and patient centred level (patient centred level represents a "patient's eye" view of care quality across the whole stroke pathway). All patients with a primary diagnosis of stroke coded as I-61, I-63, I-64 should be submitted to SSNAP. The minimum age for patient submission to SSNAP is 16.
