The National Consultant Information Programme

The National Consultant Information Programme (NCIP) aims to support NHS consultants with learning and continuous self-development with respect to their specialty.

The programme has created a secure online portal to provide consultant surgeons with their individual-level activity and metrics across their practice. The portal enables NHS consultants to review information about their clinical activity and their patient outcomes against local and national benchmarks.  The tool supports clinical quality and patient safety and can be used effectively for improvement activities, and appraisal.
