Aspects of collected information (e.g. time from 999 call to arrival at stroke unit, CT scan and thrombolysis) will be reported monthly to NHS England. SSNAP will also produce quarterly reports for ambulance trusts containing important performance metrics and additional information not contained within the monthly extracts. SSNAP reports will be modified to include this valuable information reporting both at ambulance team and hospital team level.
In order to fulfil this monthly requirement, data on all locked cases from the acute teams will be shared with ambulance teams at the end of each month. This data will be referred to “interim data” when it is published because it will be incomplete.
At each periodic deadline the full data would be downloaded so that any missing cases would be available to the ambulance trusts to complete data. This 3-month data will be referred to as “final data”.
