The Patient Report of the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit

Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (GHNHSFT) welcomes today’s (30.6.15) report on emergency bowel surgery as part of the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA). GHNHSFT was one of 192 hospitals across the country to contribute to the audit which will help clinical teams monitor standards of care more effectively.   

The report enables us to review the care we offer not just against national standards but also against all other hospitals in the country. We are not yet compliant with all the standards in this audit but have identified improving the management of patients with emergency abdominal surgery as a priority for this year.  

  • The press release issued as part of the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit is now available.
