Data Extraction

The ELC run chart maker will enable you to analyse your data whenever you wish without needing to wait for us to publish the data for you. However, it is important that we regularly collate data from all hospitals in order that we can identify best practice and improve together as a collaborative. For this to happen, we are asking you to submit your data to the ELC team once every three months, by the 10th of the month. In order that no patients are missed due to data lag, we ask that the NELA download contains all your locked records each time you submit the data.
