Where possible we use existing national or international measures to benchmark our clinical performance against other services.
The following link to national or international centres that benchmark services also provided by Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
Congenital heart disease website

It shows the number and types of procedure carried out each year at a national and individual hospital level. It also shows survival rates for the most common types of procedure.

Paediatric Intensive Care Audit Network (PICANet)
PICANet is an international clinical audit that collects information on children having intensive care in Britain and Ireland.
Clinical audit is a way of measuring the quality of care by looking at what happens to patients during and after their care and examining how the services that deliver that care are set up.
Every year PICANet publish a report including information on the numbers of children having care, the type of treatment they receive in each unit and the associated outcomes.
