Updated NVR Timelines
Following on from our newsletter on 17th April, we have finalised the timelines for the Consultant Outcomes Publication and have also allowed for an extra data submission deadline for cases to be included in the analyses for the 2020 Annual Report. These are based on procedures carried out up to and including 31/12/2019.
|Initial results for elective infra-renal AAA repairs and carotid endarterectomies sent to consultants for validation||5 June 2020|
|Final data submission deadline for elective infra-renal AAA repairs and carotid endarterectomies||3 July 2020|
|Final data submission deadline for all other NVR procedures (complex AAA, emergency AAA, lower limb angioplasty, lower limb bypass and lower limb amputation)||3 July 2020|
We have set these new deadlines following consultation with the VSGBI and HQIP, but please let us know at the earliest opportunity if any of these data submission deadlines will be an issue.
