Our healthcare system has a wide diversity of stakeholders, with the patient having the greatest stake of all. NOCA has recognised, since its inception, that collaboration with public and patient representatives and healthcare professionals is essential for the success of clinical audit and continuous improvement of quality in healthcare. As the public and patient representative on the NAHM Governance Committee, I can assure you that hospitals are given every support to monitor their in-hospital mortality. The inclusion of hospitals feedback in this report is a testament to the continued engagement with NAHM.
Mr Alan Egan, Public / Patient Intesest (PPI) Representative, NAHM Governance Committee
