The National Confidential Enquiry into Perioperative Deaths (NCEPOD) is a registered charity whose aim is to review clinical practice and identify potentially remediable factors in the practice of anaesthesia, surgery and other invasive medical procedures. The aim is to look at the quality of the delivery of care and not specifically the causation of death. The commentary and recommendations made in the annual reports are based on peer review of the data, questionnaires and other records submitted to us. NCEPOD is not a research study based on differences against a control population and does not produce any kind of comparison between clinicians or hospitals.
