NVR eNewsletter – 2017 Issue #1

Consultant Outcomes Publication

  • Below are the current key dates for the publication of consultant and trust level results for elective infra-renal AAA repairs and carotid endarterectomy in 2017. We will be analysing elective infra-renal AAA repairs undertaken between 1/1/2014 and 31/12/2016 and CEAs between 1/1/2014 and 31/12/2016.
  • The main change for 2017 is that we are planning to allocate elective infra-renal AAA repairs to the consultant named as vascular specialist 2 as well as vascular specialist 1. This feature was not available in the old NVD, which is why we propose to move to a 3-year reporting time period for elective infra-renal AAA repair.
