Support for service teams: primary care

This page provides a series of resources to support services who are participating in the NACAP asthma and COPD primary care audit.  

Audit and data collection guidance for participating services

The primary care audit automatically extracts relevant Read and SNOMED codes from general practice computer systems. In order to ensure that all relevant activity is detected a large number of codes are extracted. To support healthcare professionals and to ensure appropriate clinical activity is recognised and recorded we have developed a key set of codes that we recommend are used to populate consultation templates and should be used by clinical coders within your organisations.

Quality improvement (QI) support for primary care services 

The All Wales ICST Platform offers a publicly available NACAP specific QI toolkit – a step-by-step guide through six QI projects, based on QI priorities for primary care.

  • Recommendations for QI priorities  
  • Slide-sets highlighting key findings from clinical audit reports, to inform and support clinical teams to make improvements.
