Welcome to the
National Confidential Enquiry
into Patient Outcome and Death
This year NCEPOD celebrates 26 years of promoting improvements in health care. We have published 37 reports derived from a vast array of information about the practical management of patients.
The distinctive feature of NCEPOD's contribution is the critical examination, by senior and appropriately chosen specialists, of what has actually happened to the patients. Our recommendations have covered everything from individual clinical practice to national healthcare organisation, always with the aim of improving patient care and safety.
NCEPOD will continue to support hospitals and doctors to ensure that the highest possible quality of safe patient care is delivered.
