NCAA is open to all NHS and non-NHS acute hospitals in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, and welcomes enquiries from international hospitals. There are close to 200 hospitals currently participating in NCAA.

The scope of NCAA data collection is “Any resuscitation event, commencing in-hospital, where an individual (excluding neonates) receives chest compression(s) and/or defibrillation and is attended by the hospital-based resuscitation team (or equivalent) in response to a 2222 call.”

The NCAA team works with hospitals to ensure the entry of timely and accurate data, which are used to provide quarterly, cumulative analysis reports to support local performance management and quality improvement.

NCAA is included in the NHS England Quality Accounts List as a national clinical audit that Trusts are advised to participate in.

NCAA is overseen by a Steering Group who manage the strategic development of the audit.
