Red Blood Cell Clinical Audit and Massive Transfusion Protocol Clinical Audit Tools

The National Blood Authority is conducting a public consultation on two draft clinical audits:

  • Red Blood Cell Clinical Audit Tool
  • Massive Transfusion Protocol Clinical Audit Tool

Clinical audits can be used to improve patient outcomes through the collection of data to identify practice improvement opportunities.

We invite interested individuals, groups and organisations to comment on the Audits and encourage you to advise your colleagues of its availability for public comment. 

While the audits will eventually be made available as adaptable Excel files, they have been provided for the purposes of public consultation in .PDF format as the National Blood Authority is only seeking comment on the audits content.
