NABCOP is a national clinical audit run by the Association of Breast Surgery (ABS) and the Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU) of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS).
NABCOP is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP).
The aim of NABCOP is to support NHS providers to improve the quality of hospital care for older patients with breast cancer. They will achieve this by publishing information about the care provided by all NHS hospitals that deliver breast cancer care in England and Wales. They will look at the care received by patients with breast cancer and their outcomes.
