National Respiratory Audit Programme (NRAP)

Published by: National Respiratory Audit Programme (NRAP)

The National Respiratory Audit Programme (NRAP) for England, Scotland and Wales aims to improve the quality of care, services and clinical outcomes for patients with asthma (adult and paediatric) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Spanning the entire patient care pathway, the NRAP includes strong collaboration with asthma and COPD patients, as well as healthcare professionals, and aspires to set out a vision for a service which puts patient needs first. The programme has been commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP) and currently covers England, Scotland and Wales .

The audit programme is led by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), working closely with a broad range of organisations including Asthma UK, the British Thoracic Society, British Lung Foundation, Primary Care Respiratory Society, Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
