   National Audit of Cardiac Rehabilitation (NACR)


The NACR is funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and is hosted by the University of York in collaboration with the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). In its role as the official audit for NHS cardiac rehabilitation programmes in the UK the NACR aims to:

  • Drive innovation in cardiovascular rehabilitation locally, nationally and internationally

  • Map the extent of cardiac rehabilitation provision across the UK

  • Report annually, at clinical commissioning group level and health boards, on uptake and clinical outcomes for over 300 programmes in the UK

  • Define the typical gains for patients to expect from top performing programmes

  • Highlight and reduce inequalities in provision and outcome

  • Disseminate audit findings to service providers and the public

  • Inform clinical guidance, policy, commissioners and practice standards

  • Implement observational research to determine the effectiveness of routinely delivered services.
