    Abstract

    British hospitals have advantages over other areas of health care for developing and evaluating audit: more uniform and comprehensive medical records, statistical and diagnostic data, fewer patient contacts, more time to examine patients and record information. Although little has been published, a few studies show the extent to which formal audit has been developed in Britain.
