Welcome to PQIP


  • Around 1 in 10 patients have serious complications after major surgery 
  • These complications can affect long-term quality of life and survival      
  • There are currently no national data about the rates of complications in different hospitals or how effectively we treat them  
  • Data from the USA demonstrate huge variation in whether patients survive with good outcomes after developing complications  
  • PQIP will measure these outcomes and support clinicians to use data to improve them                     
  • We will focus on major adult elective surgery and all NHS hospitals are welcome to take part                     
  • All patients will be required to give consent to take part
