Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery
National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit

The Society has pioneered collection of surgical information in the UK, having run a register of all major heart operations since 1977. Surgeons are rightly proud of what has been achieved through this approach. The comprehensive collection and feedback of clinical outcomes to members and the public has demonstrated a 25% reduction in mortality for adult cardiac surgery since 2003. There is also international benchmarking of our results showing a 25% better risk adjusted mortality for cardiac surgery than the European average. The SCTS is recognised widely as having been at the forefront of innovation and quality improvement in the NHS for the past decade.

The aim of the Society’s National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit is to collect information about all major heart operations carried out in the UK and through that to improve quality of care for patients. The audit allows appropriate comparison of clinical performance with national and international standards, and provides useful data on changing trends within the specialty. We are international leaders in the field, having published data down to individual surgeon level since 2005.
