Abstract

Clinical audit departments will have to demonstrate more “business‐like” procedures such as rigorous project management in order to meet the demands of clinical governance. Addenbrooke’s NHS Trust Clinical Audit Department has developed a method of objectively estimating how long a clinical audit will take and therefore its resource implications. This information also allows accurate planning of a rolling programme and will assist in the adjustment of this programme according to organisational requirements.
